EU to 'Stop the Clock' on Aviation Allowances until next Autumn


Commissioner Hedgegaard described the decision, which followed a discussion of the Council of the UN ICAO on a global market-based approach to regulating greenhouse gas emissions from aviation. "Very good news came from the ICAO Council last Friday. I’ve just recommended in a telephone conference with the 27 Member States that the EU "stops the clock" when it comes to enforcement of the inclusion of aviation in the EU ETS to and from non-European countries until after the ICAO General Assembly next autumn."
