The European Commission has decided that from January 2010 and onwards, the aviation industry must monitor and report their annual CO2 emissions. This is valid for not only the European airlines, but for all commercial aircraft operators flying to/from and inside the EU Community no matter where in the world they are domiciled.
That is why it is necessary to work out two plans:
- A monitoring plan, describing how you will monitor and report your CO2 emission.
- A monitoring plan describing how you will monitor and report your production expressed in tonne-kilometre (Your payload in tons multiplied by the distance between departure and destination).
Global Aviation Data A/S will calculate the tonne-kilometre and the CO2 emissions and finally report the results to the competent authority. Everything reported very accurately to the smallest detail.
Free CO2 quota?
From 2012 and the next 8 years, you will get free CO2 quota based upon your production (tonne-kilometre) for 2010. That is, if you have reported your production for 2010 in accordance with your monitoring plan. If you have not submitted a monitoring plan, your reported production will not be taken into account, and no free quotas will be granted your company. Consequently, all quotas have to be purchased on the free market.
