In an effort to tackle aviation's small but fast-growing contribution to climate change, the EU has decided to impose a cap on CO2 emissions for all planes arriving at or departing from EU airports. Airlines would then be allowed to buy and sell 'pollution credits' on the EU 'carbon market' (Emissions Trading Scheme).
