EU Commission in ‘Difficult Position’ on Carbon Credits Plans

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- The European Commission has created a “difficult position” for itself by insisting that aviation be included from this year in its carbon curbs program, the head of the International Air Transport Association said.

“I do believe the Commission has recognized that it’s in a bit of a fix, but like any big public issue, it’s very difficult for them to take a position publicly until it’s worked out how it’s going to handle it privately,” IATA head Tony Tyler said at a press conference in Geneva today.

“We do all want to get out of this mess,” he said, adding that the 27 countries protesting the EU-imposed carbon curbs want to negotiate an agreement on a global scale without pressure from the Commission’s curbs.
