International Workshop “Inclusion of the Civil Aviation Sector in Domestic ETS” (Beijing)

27-28 July 2015 – In 2011, the Chinese government announced to gradually establish a carbon market in China as one instrument to tackle the rising carbon emissions. Therefore seven pilots for carbon emissions trading have been selected by the central government. All seven pilot ETS have successfully been implemented by now. The national ETS is scheduled to be operational latest by 2017. Civil aviation will most likely be one of the covered sectors in the initial stage of the national ETS.
