Royal Schiphol Group has commissioned CE Delft to determine remaining carbon budgets for Dutch aviation which are in line with the Paris Agreement and to investigate the consequences for the possible number of flights departing from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The study is an import input to set ‘New rules with clear limits for noise and CO2 emissions’, which is the first point of Schiphol’s 8-point plan.

As background information a concise overview of the relevant national and international policies is given.
The main findings of the study are:
