The U.S. Departments of State and Transportation will host a meeting July 31-August 1 of 15 countries that oppose the European Union’s decision to include aviation emissions in its cap and trade system. The countries will discuss options for reaching a global solution for reducing global aviation emissions through the International Civil Aviation Organization. European Union officials have indicated that they would support a global deal through the organization to reduce aviation emissions but that, in the meantime, they will not suspend application of its Emissions Trading System to airlines. Airlines for America supports establishing a market-based system for aviation emissions under the organization.
