EC welcomes progress on CORSIA

EC Commissioners Bulc and Cañete have issued a statement welcoming ICAO’s endorsement of the key parameters of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) that will tackle CO2 emissions in the international aviation sector.

The endorsement is welcomed as a key step forward in the process following the historic agreement in October 2016, which aimed to stabilise aviation emissions at 2020 levels, contributing to the objectives of the Paris Agreement and keeping global warming well below 2°C. So far, 73 States have volunteered to participate in CORSIA from the start.
