Recognizing that partnerships between ICAO Member States and the aviation industry are critical in moving toward a sustainable future for international aviation, ICAO and ATAG signed a special Joint Statement on sustainable approaches to emissions reduction last week. The signing ceremony took place after a special ATAG information session in advance of the 4th ICAO Symposium on Aviation and the Environment.
