April 2012
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Apr2012, Issue 447, p25
The article reports on a statutory advice document by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) which suggests that there is no any reason to exclude international aviation and shipping emissions from carbon budgets in Great Britain. The committee report said that existing carbon budgets in the country should be increased to allow for emissions from both sectors. It also cited the complexities that previously excluded international aviation and shipping from the carbon budgets and targets.
