Dear partners, dear friends,

Welcome to the summer edition of Watch This!, our newsletter dedicated to civil society!

As you may know, a crucial climate agreement is on the table for next October: member countries of the United Nation’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will decide how the aviation sector will tackle climate change. To limit global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, countries must agree on an ambitious and environmentally robust deal.

Reading this edition, you will know more about our ongoing campaign and find out how your organisation can make a difference, pressuring national authorities and airlines to adopt effective climate solutions. We hope that you can join us in our effort to take action so that aviation pollution will not continue to go unaddressed!

As always, should you have any suggestions or any proposal of article subject, please do not hesitate to contact me – [email protected]

Happy reading!

Chers partenaires, chers amis,

Bienvenue dans l’édition d’été de Watch This!, notre newsletter destinée à la société civile !

Comme vous le savez sans doute, un accord capital sur le climat est prévu pour octobre prochain: les pays membres de l’Organisation de l’aviation civile internationale de l’ONU (OACI) décideront de la façon dont le secteur aéronautique luttera contre les changements climatiques. Afin de limiter la hausse mondiale des températures à 1,5°C par rapport aux niveaux préindustriels, les pays doivent s’accorder sur un accord ambitieux et robuste au niveau environnemental.

En lisant cette édition, vous en saurez plus sur notre campagne en cours et découvrirez comment votre organisation peut faire la différence, en faisant pression sur les autorités et les compagnies aériennes nationales pour qu’elles adoptent des solutions efficaces de lutte contre les changements climatiques. Nous espérons que vous nous rejoindrez dans notre action afin que la problématique de la pollution issue du trafic aérien ne reste plus sans réponse!

Comme toujours, si vous avez des suggestions ou propositions pour un sujet d’article, n’hésitez pas à me contacter [email protected]

Bonne lecture!

Estimados socios y amigos,

Bienvenidos a la edición de verano de Watch This!, nuestro boletín dedicado a la sociedad civil.

Como ya saben, el próximo octubre tenemos sobre la mesa un acuerdo climático crucial: los países miembros de la Organización de Aviación Civil Internacional (OACI) decidirán cómo va a luchar el sector aéreo contra el cambio climático. Para limitar el aumento de la temperatura global a 1,5 ºC por encima de los niveles preindustriales, los estados deben adoptar un acuerdo ambicioso y medioambientalmente sólido.

Cuando lea esta edición, conocerá mejor nuestra campaña en curso, y aprenderá de qué modo puede su organización presionar tanto a autoridades como a líneas aéreas nacionales para que adopten soluciones climáticas eficaces. Esperamos que pueda acompañarnos en esta lucha activa para evitar que la contaminación causada por el sector de la aviación siga ignorándose.

Como siempre, si tiene alguna sugerencia o propuesta temática para un artículo, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo – [email protected].

¡Feliz lectura!

Pierre-Jean, Coordinador de la red

2030 climate targets of over 50 top corporations significantly off track to keep within 1.5°C limit

At a time when global carbon emissions need to be almost halved by 2030, 51 major corporations’ climate commitments amount only to reducing their median carbon footprint by as little as 30%, reveals the 2024 Corporate Climate Responsibility Monitor. Tighter regulations from governments are needed to raise the bar, both for companies which are taking insufficient action, and those who are not doing anything at all.

The EU’s double counting problem

Motivated by a desire to keep down the cost of achieving its climate targets, the EU has failed to rule out the double counting of emissions reductions under its Carbon Removals Certification Framework. By so doing it is undermining established standards and its own policies.
