The Commission welcomes the agreement reached yesterday within the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) on the first ever-global standard to cap CO2 emissions from aircraft. The
agreement must now be endorsed by the ICAO General Assembly to be held this autumn.
EU Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc said, “This agreement is an important step to curb aviation emissions. An ambitious climate policy is an integral part of the Commission’s plan
to create an Energy Union, and a priority of the new Aviation Strategy. The EU played a central role in brokering this deal, as it did at the COP21 in Paris. I hope this will create further
momentum for the creation of a Global Market-Based Measure to offset CO2 emissions from international aviation, which we hope to achieve this autumn at the ICAO General Assembly.”
