10 MIN. READ
The aviation sector produces over 2% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions and this number is expected to grow considerably. But, the industry also provides critical economic benefits, including 60 million jobs and 3.5% of global GDP. Without a nuanced approach, new aviation taxes in EU countries could do more harm than good.
 
This paper helps government decision-makers understand the implications of these policies—providing insight on how to achieve emissions reduction targets without harming their economies. It covers:
  • Current aviation taxes in the EU and their effects
  • Learnings from comparable industries
  • Alternative approaches to improving sustainability in aviation
  • Recommendations for policymakers to consider
