European countries declare their support for scheme to limit aviation emissions

A group of 44 European countries have backed plans to implement a new global market-based measure to limit carbon emissions from airlines. Click here for the document: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/news/doc/2016-09-09-bratislava-declaration/declaration.pdf

The declaration, signed by the EU’s 28 member states and 16 other nations, was issued late last week ahead of a major meeting the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in Montreal on September 27, where members will formally agree a mandatory global offset scheme for civil aviation.
