Airlines seeks presidential action on EU ETS

Some 19 US aviation-related companies have called on President Barack Obama to file a UN action (Article 48) to stop the EU Emissions Trading Scheme requiring foreign aircraft to pay for their carbon emissions.
“An Article 84 action will prompt, rather than impede, agreement and implementation of a global framework for addressing aviation greenhouse gas emissions,” the groups, wrote in their letter to Obama.
The U.N.’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) governing council will convene from October 29 to November 6 – one of the items on the agenda will be to find a global solution to aviation emissions.
The council is expected to have a draft plan by March 2013 but any global system will have to be approved by ICAO’s 191 members at its autumn 2013 assembly.
