  • Bombardier CSeries designed around fleet carbon management


    <P>Carbon offsets are dismissed by some critics as an excuse for individuals and corporations to carry on with bad behaviour rather than implement real change to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But ask Bombardier how it views such programmes and it will tell you plainly that carbon offsetting is part of a new environment-driven reality that airframers and operators are going to have to build into their business models. </P> <P>Closing fast are European Union plans to include in its Emissions Trading Scheme all flights arriving or departing from airports in the EU. The ETS is a "cap and trade" scheme by which total industrial emissions will be capped at 2004-6 levels. Amounts above this level must be offset or traded. </P> <P>Implementation is fast approaching, notes Bombardier. This August, operators must submit their plans for pre-compliance to the EU member state government where their aircraft is domiciled or flies the most. In January 2010, a two-year pre-compliance period begins

  • IN FOCUS The long and rocky road to consensus on aviation emissions

    News | 13 Dec 2013 15:36 | Kerry Reals

    Gaining consensus from almost 200 states on how to universally regulate the greenhouse gas emissions of their airlines was never going to be easy. It has been a long and rocky road for ICAO, the body charged with getting the world to agree on a single market-based measure (MBM) to govern the growth of aviation emissions, and still that agreement remains elusive.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-The-long-and-rocky-road-to-consensus-on-aviation-emissions-394079/
