The webinar 'Where do things stand in Europe?' will be held at 8:00 AM Dublin/London/Lisbon time and 9:00 AM Berlin/Paris/Rome time
Panel 1: SETTING THE STAGE
Drawing on the latest scientific advances in understanding aviation’s total climate impacts, this session discusses what moves might best be made first, and the overall business case for mitigating these impacts. It sheds light on the main drivers of aviation climate impacts, and how best to mitigate these. It touches on adaptation costs and the little‐known effects of climate change on operations (clear air turbulences, jetstream changes, and unpredictable weather for example). The session will seek to identify key technologies and associated policy measures.

Panel 2: EUROPEAN POLICY SCENE: WHAT POLICY OPTIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING DEBATED IN EUROPE
Given the EU’s ‘Green Deal’ and the broader context of the recent shift in US policy on climate change, this Panel will briefly review the record of Market Based Measures such as emissions trading systems, ticket taxes, and environmentally determined airport charges in reducing European aviation’s climate footprint to date. The panel will discuss what might be the best future approaches; for example should there be a stronger aviation ETS? What elements should be included in an aviation ETS? What role will IATA’s CORSIA play in Europe? What is the current thinking on fuel taxation? The panel will also consider the role of command and control measures such as national CO2 caps or mandated use of sustainable aviation fuels.
