Aviation executives meeting at the Global Sustainable Aviation Summit in Geneva were told that the countdown had begun for airlines and governments to prepare for the carbon offsetting and reduction scheme for international aviation (CORSIA), which was agreed by governments meeting at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 12 months ago.
The CORSIA is designed to offset the growth in carbon dioxide emissions from international aviation after 2020. The first six years of the scheme, negotiated by governments and supported by the industry, will be voluntary for States to join. In later years, it will be mandatory for all but the smallest aviation markets.
Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) Executive Director, Michael Gill, reminded delegates that the race is on to implement the agreement: “Airlines included in CORSIA will need to offset their emissions from 1 January 2021, but the scheme comes into effect before then, with compliance needing to begin as early as one year from now.
