CICS Adds France to List of EU ETS Accreditations
CICS has been accredited to verify carbon reports for operators flying into France. The company is already accredited to verify operators who report into the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands and Portugal.
With only 3 months left before aviation operators must report their verified 2010 emissions and tonne-kilometre data, many operators are now searching for an independent accredited verifier.
"CICS has experienced verifiers on the ground in Europe and in North America," said Kurt Teuscher, President of CICS, Inc. "Our parent company has been handling EUETS verifications for many years, and has verified the equivalent of over $8 billion of CO2 to date."
Teuscher reported a rapid rise in activity among U.S. operators in recent weeks, in response to the pending EUETS deadline. He expects to see this activity continue to pick up in the weeks ahead. He noted that Lucideon has forged an alliance with Universal Weather & Aviation, Inc., which offers aviation operators a portal for emissions reporting and verification services at www.EU-ETS.aero
