16 May 2019 Economic and sustainability impacts of an aviation tax: New variants
In 2018 CE Delft carried out a study on the economic and sustainability impacts of a number of variants of an aviation tax (CE Delft, 2018). After the report was completed, the Ministry of Finance indicated it would like several new variants to be examined in which the tax would cover not only passenger departures but also cargo aircraft. The present report analyses the economic and sustainability impacts of these variants. It also recalculates the impacts of two of the earlier variants, as a new version of the AEOLUS model is now available.
3 May 2019 - Shipping emissions: International measures needed to cut operational greenhouse gas emissions of existing fleet by 2030
The international shipping sector needs to quickly adopt short-term policy measures to cut operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the existing fleet, according to a new study. The study concludes that only a subset of potential policy options, namely those that mandate changes in how the existing fleet is operated, can achieve the significant effect required to meet the sector’s emission reduction objectives. Examples of these policies are speed limits or mandatory limits on operational efficiency or shaft power. See press release

A quick scan to identify potentially successful policy measures in nine European countries
While each country has its own climate policy framework, there could be benefits in joining forces in some areas to speed up the necessary developments. Coordination and alignment of policy measures within a group of neighbouring countries can increase the effectiveness of climate policies while reducing carbon leakage effects and competitive disadvantages. This report, commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, provides a broad overview of potential policy measures where synergy effects from cross-border coordination could be achieved.
