This autumn, the 191 countries in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will meet in Montreal to decide how to tackle CO2 emissions from international flights. The proposal on the table is a global market-based measure (MBM) with the initial goal of capping net carbon emissions in the sector at 2020 levels (“carbon neutral growth from 2020” – CNG2020).
The International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation (ICSA), the official NGO observer group in ICAO, published its Checklist for the MBM this spring. This Progress Report assesses the latest draft of the MBM text (25th July 2016) against ICSA’s Checklist and recommends ways to improve its environmental integrity.
