China Sees Possibility of Deal With EU on Airline Emissions

Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) -- China believes it can agree with the European Union on ways to limit airline emissions without relying on the emissions trading system, National Development and Reform Commission vice chairman Xie Zhenhua said.

“We have lot of options besides the emissions trading system to achieve emission targets in the aviation sector,” Xie said in an interview in the south Indian port city of Chennai. “For example, to save energy, improve energy efficiency, to improve the level of management. All can work together and the emission trading system can help.”

A United Nations meeting on climate change in Warsaw at the end of this year is important because it will lay the basis for future negotiations, Xie said.

“China will actively participate in the negotiation for emission reduction and we do hope that through our joint efforts we can achieve a result this year,” the official said.
