Emission Reduction Targets for International Aviation and Shipping

16-11-2015

This study provides an overview of potential CO2 mitigation targets for international aviation and maritime transport and analyses which targets would be compatible with the global long-term goal of keeping the temperature increase below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. The analysis supports the view that it is important to establish targets for both sectors which clearly indicate that emissions cannot grow in an unlimited and unregulated way. This study was provided by Policy Department A for the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI).
