09.00 – 09.05 Opening
09.05 – 09.30 Presentation 4: Setting a new pathway to reduce aviation’s climate impact

A recent study of the global CO2 inventory for aviation showed emissions currently rising 70% faster than projections. As a matter of urgency, governments and the aviation sector must therefore come up with a long-term strategy to enable a ‘zero climate impact’ by 2050 that is consistent with Paris accord objectives. What is the vision of environmental groups represented at ICAO on how to set this goal?
