The article discusses the pressure on the aviation sector to reduce its carbon-dioxide emissions in 2008. The British government has pledged to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by up to 32% by 2020 and at least 60% by 2050 that will be enforced through the Climate Change Bill. Airlines are due to join a European Union scheme to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by trading allowances from 2012.
