Reports, analyses and information on an international agreement to tackle international aviation emissions, also known as Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
In 2010, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) adopted an aspirational goal to achieve Carbon Neutral Growth from 2020 (CNG2020). In 2013, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) established a working group for developing a Global Market-Based Measure (GMBM).
The 39th ICAO reached an agreement in October 2016 on a resolution setting up the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). This consists of a GMBM, which aims at mitigating CO2 emissions and guiding activity by the global airline industry. In June 2018, an ICAO Council session endorsed the main set of requirements and recommendations for the scheme. Negotiations were launched in 2012.
CORSIA has three implementation phases and its starts with a pilot and voluntary phase in 2021. It then becomes compulsory from 2027, but emissions data should be collected already starting in 2019.
