Our Environment Programme - Incentives and Metrics

Their role in our environment work

The environment can be successfully influenced by the right economic measures. For example, incentives focusing on efficiency can have a strong environmental dimension; a key example being measures implemented to reduce fuel burn (and associated cost), which can have a direct link to lower CO2 emissions.

As a regulator, the CAA has statutory roles that are concerned with lowering costs and improving efficiency, where incentives and metrics can play a part.
