A coalition of American airlines and aviation industry organizations sent a letter July 30 to the departments of State and Treasury asking them to take action to reverse the European Union’s decision to include aviation greenhouse gas emissions in its Emissions Trading System.

The two agencies hosted 16 countries that oppose including airlines in the EU ETS at a meeting July 31-August 1 on the trading system.
