The ICAO Council made important headway on 27 June on the key international standards supporting the planned timeline for the UN aviation agency’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation, or CORSIA, during its 214th Session.

This adoption of the First Edition of Annex 16, Volume IV, to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention), comes less than two years after ICAO’s 192 Member States achieved their historic agreement on CORSIA at the Organization’s 39th Assembly, an emissions-offsetting first for any global industry sector.

In the words of ICAO Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu: ‘Gaining agreement on this new Volume IV to Annex 16 is critical to helping States and airlines to operationalize CORSIA per its established deadlines.’
