The European Union has mandated that all airlines currently or in the future (!) operating to, from, and within the EU must participate in its Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) as of 2012. All Airlines flying from/to Europe will soon be required to show how they intend to disclose their carbon emissions and transport data from the beginning of 2012. The immediate priority for aircraft operators is the submission of this Monitoring Concepts, prepared
to the requirements specified by the responsible national authority, as this is a prerequisite to securing the free emission licenses that will be provided by the EU from 2012 onwards.

At Air Astana PROLOGIS was entrusted with the preparation of the t-km Monitoring Plan which will be the basis for investigation of data to receive the free allowances as well as the annual emissions Monitoring Plan which will be the basis for the annual report of CO2 emissions.
