Airports Council International (ACI) World, ACI Africa, ACI Asia-Pacific, ACI EUROPE, ACI Latin America-Caribbean and ACI North America are jointly urging State representatives at the upcoming High-level Meeting organised by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), to reach an agreement on a Long-term Aspirational Goal (LTAG) for CO2 emissions reductions, aligned with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C goal and the industry objective of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The aviation industry, Ministers, and high-level officials from States will gather at ICAO’s headquarters in Montreal, Canada between July 19 and 22 for the High-level Meeting on the feasibility of a long-term aspirational goal for international aviation CO2 emissions reductions.
The States’ representatives will examine the outcomes from the ICAO Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection and seek to make policy commitments in preparation for the 41st Session of the ICAO Assembly, a triennial event that establishes the worldwide policy of the Organization for the next three years. ACI and other international organizations are calling on States to reach a meaningful agreement to establish a clear regulatory framework in which the aviation industry can thrive while continuing to deliver socio-economic benefits to the world.
