ICSA: The Paris Agreement and Implications for Reducing Aviation Emissions

July 7, 2016

The Paris Agreement and the ICAO process to adopt effective climate measures are not separate. The Paris Agreement covers all anthropogenic emissions, sets out important principles on carbon markets, and sends a clear signal that the aviation sector must act. This document was produced by the International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation (ICSA)

While measures adopted at the ICAO level must have unique features – such as respecting the principle of non- discrimination between airline operators – this is not a barrier to swift and effective action to reduce aviation’s climate impact. The spotlight is now on ICAO to live up to its commitment to finalize a GMBM at its upcoming Assembly in October 2016.
