Issues at Stake at the 10th Session of the ICAO Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP/10)

28-01-2016

Despite efficiency improvements, CO2 emissions from international aviation are projected to be seven times higher in 2050 than in 1990. Main issues at stake at CAEP/10 are the adoption of a CO2 efficiency standard for new aircraft, a report from the working groups on the development of a Global Market-Based Measure and the commissioning of an impact assessment of a standard for non-volatile compounds. Moreover, an information paper which pursues the question of whether the aviation sector will achieve its aspirational goal of increasing energy efficiency by 2 % per year may receive some attention during the session. This briefing was provided by Policy Department A for the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI).
