International aviation

With a global agreement reached at the 37th ICAO Assembly, international aviation is the first sector with a shared global commitment to environmental goals of increasing fuel efficiency and stabilizing its global CO2 emissions in the medium term. It is a clear demonstration of the willingness of ICAO’s 190 member States together with industry to take concrete steps towards a global solution for the  sustainable future of international civil aviation.

CO2 emissions from international maritime transport cannot be attributed to any particular national economy due to its global activities and complex operations.

Therefore, IMO has been pursuing energetically the limitation and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping, in recognition of the magnitude of the climate change challenge.
