ICAO Council Adopt New Aircraft CO2 Emissions Standard

06 Mar 2017

To reduce the global environmental impact of aviation greenhouse gas emissions, the ICAO Council has adopted a new aircraft CO2 emissions standard.

“Contained in a new Volume III to Annex 16 of the Chicago Convention (Environmental Protection), the aircraft CO2 emissions measure represents the world’s first global design certification standard governing CO2 emissions for any industry sector,” the ICAO reports.

The standard will apply to new aircraft designs from 2020, and aircraft type designs already in production as of 2023. Aircraft in production that by 2028 do not meet the new standard will need to be modified sufficiently or will not be able to be produced.
