LONDON — Chinese and Indian airlines failed to submit carbon-dioxide emissions data for 2011, disregarding European rules that seek to expand the region’s emissions trading system to include aviation. There has been “systematic non-reporting” of emissions to and from Europe from 10 airlines based in India and China, the European Commission said Tuesday in a statement on its Web site. The European Union expanded its Emissions Trading Scheme in January to include airlines. The new rules require carriers to submit data on their carbon emissions for last year, although carbon permits are not required for 2011 emissions.
