Commentary: “EU Emissions Trading Scheme: Problems presented to Canada” by Armand de Mestral and Tanveer Ahmad

Commentary (April 2012) By Armand de Mestral, Emeritus Professor, Jean Monnet Professor of Law and Md. Tanveer Ahmad, DCL candidate (McGill University)

From January 1, 2012, Canadian civil aircraft have been subject to the European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). Under this agreement, a cap-and-trade principle limits the total amount of certain greenhouse gases that can be emitted by different types of companies, including airline companies. This commentary addresses the implication of this policy for Canada with regards to the Kyoto Protocol and the Chicago Convention.
