Aviation industry calls for global agreement and climate change leadership by governments ahead of ICAO Assembly
Ahead of the 38th ICAO Assembly starting on Tuesday, the aviation industry has urged ICAO member states to set aside their differences on a controversial global market-based measure (MBM) and take bold decisions on mitigating the growth of aviation carbon emissions. In a joint paper submitted to the Assembly by trade bodies representing airlines, airports, air navigation service providers, aerospace manufacturers and business aviation, they call for action by governments to support the industry’s own efforts in reducing the climate impact of the sector. Primarily, the industry is looking for a firm commitment at this Assembly towards an agreement at the following Assembly in 2016 on implementing a single global MBM from 2020, which would be in line with the sector’s own carbon-neutral growth (CNG2020) target.
