Ready for emissions regulations? Find out how we can help you to implement an effective carbon compliance strategy.
With aviation now included in the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS), aircraft operators flying to, from and within the EU have to surrender one carbon dioxide allowance per tonne emitted.
Plan ahead to minimize the impact of compliance on your resources and profitability.
We can help you manage your carbon compliance.
Shell is one of the world's leading jet fuel providers and executed the first trade of EU carbon dioxide allowances. We can work with you to implement an effective carbon compliance strategy.
