The main priority for the upcoming months is to ensure swift implementation of the adopted ‘Fit for 55’ texts setting in law all sectors’ contributions to the EU target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. DG CLIMA focuses on the implementing legislation for the Emissions Trading System, most notably: (i) the operationalisation of the 20 million allowances of support for the uptake of eligible clean aviation fuels, (ii) the detailed implementation of ICAO’s CORSIA scheme (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) through the ETS Directive - for example, the quality and eligibility criteria of international offset units for aviation in relation to CORSIA - and (iii) the establishment of a world premiere with the implementation of a monitoring, reporting and verification framework for the non-CO2 effects of the sector.
