ETS: EU pins hopes on 2016 for global airline emissions deal, rapporteur Peter Liese asserts

Peter Liese MEP (EPP), rapporteur on Aviation in the EU ETS, talks to leading environment journalist Sonja van Renssen about the provisional agreement on including aviation in the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

On the 4th of March, the European Parliament, Council and European Commission reached a provisional agreement on ETS rules for aviation, which will restrict the scheme to intra-European flights until 2016, after which it would apply to all flights unless there is a global deal on airline emissions. In this interview, rapporteur Peter Liese explains what the deal means and his expectations for a global agreement. The Parliament’s environment committee is due to vote on the deal on 19 March and the plenary on 3 April 2014.
