2016 – Webinar: Acting on Aviation Emissions

May 2016

Civil aviation is a top ten global polluter: in 2014, the sector emitted more CO2 into the atmosphere than the combined emissions of the 129 lowest emitting countries. In October 2016, member countries of the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will take a first decision in history   about the sector’s role in tackling climate change. It is expected that the majority of the effort will be done through offsetting emissions via a global market-based mechanism (GMBM). This webinar will discuss the main challenges regarding this process and how civil society can take action for stringent rules that limit greenwashing, build ambition and provide transparency and environmental integrity.
