欧洲航空业与碳交易体系，及ICAO达成气候协定的进程——Andrew Murphy 交通与环境(T&E)
Aviation is a large and growing contributor to climate change. Globally, international aviation emissions are equal to the combined emissions of the lowest emitting 129 states. Despite this impact, they are largely unregulated: they are omitted from national pledges submitted to the UNFCCC, and their fuel remains exempt from taxation. Domestic aviation emissions are also growing at an alarming rate.
Aviation currently makes only a small contribution to China’s climate impact: less than 1%. However this figure is rapidly growing – having increased 23% between 2010 and 2013. Some predict that by 2025 China will have the world’s largest domestic aviation market.
While the current impact of China’s aviation sector may be small, China has a huge ability to influence global aviation and climate policy. Later this year, the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) is due to adopt a global climate deal to stabilise emissions from international aviation at 2020 levels. China is a major player in ICAO: in the China-US joint presidential statement on climate change, the presidents committed to working bilaterally and with other countries to achieve successful outcomes this year at ICAO, and its support will be essential. China has also announced plans to put domestic aviation emissions in its national Emissions Trading Scheme due to launched next year. This follows the EU’s inclusion of aviation in its ETS since 2012.
In the workshop co-organised by Greenovation Hub, Transport & Environment and China Carbon Forum, we will invite speakers to share their insights on the ICAO process and international aviation emissions, the expansion of China’s aviation sector and the taming of its environmental impact in the national carbon emission trading market, to explore the challenges and opportunities for China to better contribute to the global efforts in tackling aviation emissions to achieve a sustainable and climate-smart growth.

Europe’s experience with aviation and carbon markets, and ICAO’s efforts to craft a global climate deal – Andrew Murphy, Transport & Environment (T&E)
Greenovation Hub is a grassroots environmental NGO with a global outlook. G:HUB Policy Centre promotes the development and implementation of sound climate and environmental friendly policies through conducting in-depth analysis and research, as well as fostering dialogue among stakeholders, to drive China’s green transition towards a sustainable, equitable and resilient future, contributing to the reduction of global ecological footprint.
Transport & Environment (T&E)
is a federation of 50 organisations across Europe, mostly environmental groups and campaigners working for sustainable transport policies at international, national and regional level. Its mission is to promote a transport policy based on the principles of sustainable development. Transport policy should minimise harmful impacts on the environment and health, maximise efficiency of resources, including energy and land, and guarantee safety and sufficient access for all.
is an independent, not-for-profit platform established in 2007 to foster relationships, build understanding and share information among China’s stakeholders to promote a low-carbon and climate-resilient society. CCF is steered by a board of senior government, private and non-profit sector representatives with a network of over 1,500 individuals representing more than 700 organisations.
