File Reducing climate impacts from international aviation: Europe leads the way
The European Commission is proposing legislation to bring the aviation sector into the European Union's pioneering emissions trading scheme (EU ETS) in order to control the rapid growth in CO2 emissions from air travel. Until now airlines have not been subject to the constraints on energy consumption or greenhouse gas emissions that other businesses have to live with. Emissions from domestic flights are covered by the Kyoto Protocol's emission targets for developed countries, but international aviation - which makes up the vast majority of flights - is not. In addition, jet fuel for international flights has historically been exempted from taxation. Hence the need for policy action.

Publication Mitigating climate change - SOER 2010 thematic assessment
The EU emitted close to 5 billion tonnes (Gt) of CO2-equivalent emissions in 2008. It contributes today around 12 % of annual global anthropogenic direct greenhouse gas emissions. The EU is making good progress towards achieving its emission reduction targets. A rapid, sustained and effective transition to a low carbon economy is necessary to mitigate climate change and to meet global greenhouse gas emission targets.

File To fly or to dial? Web conferencing as a way to limit CO2 emissions
New online communication services have re-defined the concept of a "business meeting". Web conferencing tools allow virtual meetings between large groups at several locations. Live videoconferences have a "face-to-face" feeling to them with a few exceptions: no ticket reservations, security checks or passports required. Advantages include time saving and an improved CO2 scorecard. With business travel accounting for approximately 20 % of the world market, cutting down on long-distance meetings has the potential to significantly decrease CO2 emissions. The EEA was a pioneer as the first EU body to qualify for EU's eco-management and audit scheme (EMAS) in 2004. The Agency is committed to reduce its overall emissions and operate in an environmentally sound manner.
