ICAO Council Adopts New CO2 Emissions Standard For Aircraft

Will Apply To New Aircraft Designs Beginning In 2020

The 36-State ICAO Council has adopted a new aircraft CO2 emissions standard which will reduce the impact of aviation greenhouse gas emissions on the global climate.

Contained in a new Volume III to Annex 16 of the Chicago Convention (Environmental Protection), the aircraft CO2 emissions measure represents the world’s first global design certification standard governing CO2 emissions for any industry sector.

The Standard will apply to new aircraft type designs from 2020, and to aircraft type designs already in-production as of 2023. Those in-production aircraft which by 2028 do not meet the standard will no longer be able to be produced unless their designs are sufficiently modified.

“International civil aviation has once again taken pioneering action to address the impact of aviation CO2 emissions on the global climate,” stressed ICAO Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu,  “making air transport the first industry sector globally to adopt a CO2 emissions design certification standard. Alongside our 39th Assembly’s landmark agreement last October on the new Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), this latest development confirms our sector’s leadership and concrete actions toward ensuring a sustainable end environmentally responsible future for global civil aviation,” President Aliu added.

“This historic accomplishment places aviation in an even better position as we look forward to a greener era of air transport development,” commented ICAO Secretary General Dr. Fang Liu. “The dedicated work of  the ICAO Secretariat, the hundreds of experts who compose ICAO’s Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP), and the State representatives on our Air Navigation Commission has been highly appreciated.”

“ICAO’s final approval of aviation’s first CO2 emission standard for airplanes is a milestone that enshrines aviation manufacturers’ commitment to mitigate our industry’s impact on climate change,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said. “We are proud of the important leadership role that general aviation manufacturers played in developing the new standard over the past six years through collaboration with global authorities and civil society stakeholders.”
