Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have supported Central Government moves to bring aviation within the EU Emissions Trading scheme (for example in the GLA response to Government's Energy Review) and continue to press for fiscal measures to reduce demand for air travel. I have also introduced carbon off-setting for GLA group air travel, and encourage other organisations to do the same.
