  4. 4. Click to edit What ittitle& who’s affected EU ETS – Master is style • What is it? – In Spring 2009, the European Union announced plans to expand the scope of its Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to include aviation. The plan has caused a lot of speculation throughout the aviation industry. – In simple terms, EU ETS is a mandatory regulation requiring all non-commercial operators and commercial large emitters who travel into, out of, and between EU Member States to monitor their CO2 emissions starting 1 January 2010. • Who does it apply to? – The EU ETS applies to non-commercial operators and commercial large emitters who conduct flights to, from or within airports located in EU countries or EU country territories
  5. 5. Click to edit What you need to do EU ETS – Master title style • What am I required to do? – Operators are required to submit a plan to monitor emissions (Annual Emissions Monitoring Plan) and have the option of submitting a benchmarking plan (Tonne-Kilometre Monitoring Plan) to their assigned regulatory authority for approval. – Starting Jan. 1, 2010, operators must monitor their emissions in accordance with their approved emissions plan and then submit a verified report of those emissions to the regulatory agency in their assigned Member State annually. – Check with your service provider or Member State for a list of approved third-party verifiers
  6. 6. Click to edit The “When” is now EU ETS – Master title style • Should I be monitoring emissions now? – Yes. Annual emissions reporting begins 1 Jan. 2010 for the EU ETS pre- trading periods. Your initial third-party verified report must be submitted to your Member State's regulatory authority no later than 31 March 2011. This pre-trading period will be in effect 2010 and 2011. During this time annual emission reporting will be required, but no carbon offset credits will need to be purchased or traded. – Beginning with the 2012 annual emissions report (submitted by 31 March 2013), operators will be required to purchase or apply carbon credits to retroactively offset all CO2 emissions. • Who do I submit my plans/reports to? – Each Operator is defined to a specific EU Country (Member State) which acts as their authority within EU ETS. All Monitoring Plans and Reports will be submitted directly to the designated authority of that country.
  7. 7. Click to edit How: Getting Started EU ETS – Master title style • How do I identify my assigned Member State? – To identify your Member State visit: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/cli mat/aviation/operators_en.htm • My operator name DOES NOT appear on the list. What should I do? – If you cannot identify your aircraft on any Member State list, you must submit a Fleet List Form to the European Commission to be assigned one.

  9. 9. Click to edit What if… style EU ETS – Master title • I missed my member state’s deadline. Will I be fined? – It is unlikely that you would face disciplinary action as long as you make contact with your authority in good faith and work out a timeframe to have your Monitoring Plan submitted. It has been stressed by some EU authorities that they have little appetite for disciplinary measures and are solely interested in timely compliance.
  10. 10. Click to edit TKM Benchmarking EU ETS – Master title style • Why should I participate in the Benchmarking Plan? – The potential cost saving advantages of participating in the Benchmarking Program could be significant. • What is included in the Benchmarking Plan? – In 2010, operators participating in the benchmarking scheme will monitor their Distance/Payload in accordance with their approved Tonne-Kilometre (TKM) Plan and then submit a verified report of this data to the regulator by March 31, 2011. • How difficult is it to create a Benchmarking Plan? – Once an operator understands exactly what is being asked for in the plan, it only takes a day or two to create.
  11. 11. Click to edit TKM Benchmarking EU ETS – Master title style • How do I calculate this information? – Talk to your service provider and your Member State. Much of the information you need to calculate is already included in your flight plans and service providers such as Universal will be providing free online tools and assistance to help operators make their calculations and complete the necessary forms. • Ultimately, how is EU ETS going to impact my flight department? – ETS is here to stay. I recommend adapting now and participating in the Benchmarking Program as it will save you money in the long run. More information on EU ETS is available at www.eu-ets.aero.
