ABSTRACT
The article considers a proposal by the airline industry trade association International Air Transport Association (IATA) to create a unified carbon-dioxide emissions offsetting program for international airline operations by 2020. The proposal is considered as an alternative to the total implementation of the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU-ETS) on foreign airline industry companies' operations.
