The fourth ICAO Symposium on Aviation and Climate Change, “Destination Green”, was held at ICAO Headquarters from 14 to 16 May and attended by 233 participants from 62 Member States and 23 international organizations.
The Symposium aimed at fostering a dialogue amongst participants on environmental and aviation matters, including noise, operations and technology, market-based measures, States’ action plans, sustainable alternative fuels for aviation, and financing and assistance, in advance of the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly in September 2013.
The Symposium informed States on the environmental activities of the Organization over the past three years. Participants provided very positive feedback on the organization, the quality and significance of the information provided, and the relevance of the discussions during the Symposium.
At the end of the Symposium, a round table consisting of States’ Representatives was organized to discuss the next steps, potential challenges and new opportunities for aviation and the environment. In addition, ICAO, in coordination with Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), developed the ICAO-ATAG joint statement, signed on 13 May 2013, to “cooperate on the promotion of sustainable approaches to global aviation emissions reduction”.
