Emissions trading in aviation

The EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) applies to all flights between airports in the EEA. Provisions on emissions trading concerning aviation are laid down in Directive 2008/101/EC. Finland has implemented the aviation-related amendments to the Emissions Trading Directive with the Act on Aviation Emissions Trading (34/2010).

The Ministry of Transport and Communications is responsible for aviation emissions trading in Finland. The competent authorities in Finland are the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) and the Energy Authority.
