The EU's assessment of the Corsia airline CO2 deal

T&E has obtained the EU Commission's assessment of the UN’s aviation offsetting scheme (Corsia), which it received in September 2020 but has delayed publishing. The study (which can be downloaded here) finds major flaws in the scheme, calling into further question whether it can be in any way compatible with the EU Green Deal. T&E's briefing, also available below, provides an analysis of the main findings as well as our recommendations to ensure Corsia does not further damage Europe’s climate ambitions by being integrated into EU law to the detriment of the EU carbon market (ETS).
