Conference will examine the new aviation industry carbon reduction scheme

Posted on: 27/10/2017

International conference will look in detail at the latest developments on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation.

Aviation Carbon 2017 is being held at the London Heathrow Marriott on 4th-5th December. This international conference will look in detail at the latest developments on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) that was agreed by Member States of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) at their Assembly a year ago. Since then, work has continued within ICAO on developing regulations that will underpin the scheme, which is aimed at ensuring that future net CO2 emissions from international aviation are stabilised at 2020 levels from 2021 onwards.

While CORSIA does not fully take effect until the end of 2020, all aircraft operators conducting international flights will need to start preparing from next year. They will also need to understand how the carbon markets operate and what carbon offsets will be eligible under the scheme. Sustainable aviation fuels will also play an important part in CORSIA and will be covered by the conference

CORSIA will therefore have major implications for airlines and business jet operators worldwide, as well as for the carbon markets. Together with investors, legal and financial institutions, aircraft leasing companies, academics, aviation biofuel stakeholders, industry consultants and government and regulatory authorities, all will need to attend this conference to understand the complexities and challenges ahead.

Aviation Carbon 2017 will bring aircraft operators together with carbon market professionals and other stakeholders to discuss and inform on what is the first global market-based climate measure for any industrial sector.

The major airline, business aviation and carbon market associations around the world are supporting Aviation Carbon 2017.
