A Donald Trump company has been fined by the UK’s Environment Agency for breaking the county’s carbon emissions rules.
The penalty is for a flight to the UK in a plane owned by DJT Operations, a part of the Trump Organization, owes £1,610 ($2,347) under the European Union’s carbon pollution emissions trading scheme (ETS), The Guardian reports. The ETS requires polluters to purchase a carbon permit for every metric ton of carbon pollution emitted, or pay a €100 ($109) per metric ton fine.
The Bahrain Royal family, 21st Century Fox America, and British construction vehicle manufacturers JCB have also been fined for UK flights, according to The Guardian.
Trump, a US presidential candidate, has said climate change was “created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive.”
