Year-end closing EU ETS and CH ETS aviation

Every spring, aircraft operators participating in the European Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), and possibly also in the Swiss Emissions Trading System (CH ETS), must close the previous emissions year. This obligation consists of reporting CO2 emissions, and surrendering emission allowances. The NEa will proceed to impose sanctions on aircraft operators that fail to fulfil these obligations.
