European Commission: ETS issue must be solved through ICAO

European Commission Vice-President and Commissioner for Transport Siim Kallas said (13-Feb-2012) the issue of aviation emissions trading "must be tackled, and solved, in ICAO" and Europe wants to see a multilateral solution. Mr Kallas said Europe has willingly struck a lone path in "tackling some of the difficult regulatory challenges that we will all ultimately face, we would still prefer multilateral solutions." He also suggested the EU and ASEAN explore the possibility of bloc-to-bloc aviation agreements. [more - original PR]
