Flying Clean: Limiting the CO2 Emissions from International Aviation



International aviation represents around 1.3% of global man-made CO2 emissions. With the predicted doubling of the number of passengers by 2030, strong mitigation measures are required to limit the impact of international aviation on climate change. The aviation industry has set ambitious goals: carbon-neutral growth from 2020 and emissions reduced to half of their 2005 level by 2050, or 320 million tonnes for global commercial aviation. To fulfil this commitment, the sector needs to action several levers, including fuel and operational efficiency and global market-based measures. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is currently negotiating an agreement on the definition and scope of such a measure. The session will investigate the evolution of CO2 emissions from international aviation and discuss the measures considered by the industry and ICAO. It will also discuss opportunities for enhanced co-collaboration between all stakeholders.
