Saudia ordered to disobey EU emission rules
- Saudi Arabia: Thursday, October 04 - 2012 at 08:41
Saudi Arabian Airline has been instructed by the government not to comply with European Union emissions-trading rules, in protest against the bloc's decision to include non-EU carriers in its carbon market, Bloomberg has reported, citing two people with knowledge of the matter. The kingdom has notified the 27-member bloc of the decision and discussions are ongoing to reach a compromise, said the people. The kingdom was one of the countries including the US, China, and India that issued a joint statement in February opposing the EU rule, which stipulates that airlines flying into and out of the bloc must report the carbon-dioxide pollution from their flights and surrender EU permits matching those emissions every year starting in 2012.
