Submission to the Commission for Aviation Regulation on the Consultation on Process for Consideration of Supplementary Capex Allowance

16th September 2016
Submission Summary

In response to the consultation on Process for Consideration of Supplementary Capex Allowance, An Taisce submit that it is a matter of fact that Commission Paper 5/2016 has failed to make any reference to consideration of climate mitigation in airport capital investment.

With the most recent information published by the EU highlighting the high volume of emissions generated by aviation, stating that "someone flying from London to New York and back generates roughly the same level of emissions as the average person in the EU does by heating their home for a whole year" and with global international aviation projected to increase, An Taisce have submitted that the Commission for Aviation Regulation need to comply with Section 15 of the Climate and Low Carbon Development Act 2015.
