Tackling aviation climate change is one of the great political challenges of the moment. This conference aimed to look beyond the current headlines concerning the EU-ETS and examined the why, how and who of a global aviation climate regime. World experts on the issues set out the latest science on aviation’s climate impacts, examined the policy options and looked at how these could be tackled on the global level.
Setting mandatory global and regional speed limits for shipping is legally and technically feasible and does not require major administrative and economic burdens for enforcement.

These were the main conclusions of a 4 October seminar on ship speed limits organised in Brussels by Transport & Environment and Seas at Risk.
