For the calculations of the estimated emissions of air pollution caused by aviation in the Netherlands, the emissions emitted above 3000 feet are not included in the national totals.
I understand that the pollution caused at this height can float anywhere on the world and so I understand it is not particularry polution the air in the Netherlands but probably worldwide.

Why is it not included for determining the National Emissions Ceilings (because it does contribute to air pollution i assume)?

Dear M. Glashouwer,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

In order to compile their emission inventories, Member States shall follow the EMEP Reporting Guidelines where at art. 24 the following is stated: Emissions from domestic and international aviation during the landing and take-off cycle shall be included in the national totals. Cruise emissions from domestic and international aviation shall not be included in national totals. These cruise emissions should be reported separately as memorandum items in the annex I reporting template.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
