EU-ETS and Business Aviation 
The European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS), which has been relabeled as a “System” is a far-reaching program involving government fees, industry emissions caps and trading of emissions credits. Its stated goal is to reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere by 20% by 2020. When initiated in 2005, the program targeted fixed-in-place European emitters such as power generation facilities, oil refineries, pulp plants and such. Then in 2009, the ETS was extended to aviation.
