This report (published in 2007) summarises the conclusions of research by the respected Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester.

It examines the role of the European Union’s aviation sector within a low-carbon future and the implications of such a future for carbon prices and aviation in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

On the basis of the research, and included in this report, Friends of the Earth recommends a number of improvements to the proposal to include aviation in the ETS.
