Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (#CORSIA2018)


Welcome to the ICAO Seminar on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). For the first time ICAO will be broadcasting one of our Environment events on YouTube Live. You can follow the broadcast right here on UnitingAviation.com. Just scroll down below to the event playlist. The live broadcast began Monday, 2 July 2018 at 9:00 AM GMT -4:00. After the broadcast, the videos will be made available for on-demand viewing right here.

The decision to organize this Seminar stems from Assembly Resolution A39-3 (Consolidated statement of continuing ICAO policies and practices related to environmental protection – Global Market-based Measure (MBM) Scheme), by which the 39th Assembly decided that ICAO and Member States take all necessary actions in providing capacity building and assistance for implementation of CORSIA.

CORSIA-related Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) were adopted by the Council in June 2018, for the application from 1 January 2019. In light of the envisaged adoption of the SARPs, the objective of the two-day seminar is to further train participants on the CORSIA implementation requirements, in order for relevant stakeholders to have a clear understanding of the procedures and required actions, as well as related responsibilities, involved in the CORSIA implementation. Contents of the seminar will be based on the expected CORSIA-related SARPs, and also on the lessons learned and outcomes from a series of regional seminars being held on this subject from 21 March to 18 April 2018.
