EU Emissions Trading in air traffic

Since 2012, aviation has been included in emissions trading. Expert bodies must review and verify the monitoring and reporting methodology of emissions and tonne-kilometre data of aircraft operators with regard to legal requirements on safety, conformity and plausibility.

GUTcert is one of the leading verification bodies in European emissions trading and accredited by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) for all fields (including aviation). We examine applications for free allocation of allowances in accordance with Articles 3e and 3f of Directive 2003/87/EC and verify reports on tonne-kilometres and annual emissions in full – target-oriented and swift.
