In the context of the ICAO Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), an aeroplane operator can reduce its CORSIA offsetting requirements in a given year by claiming emissions reductions from the use of CORSIA Eligible Fuels (CEF).
In order to become eligible, such fuels shall come from fuel producers that are certified by a Sustainability Certification Scheme (SCS) approved by the ICAO Council to perform this certification. Such SCSs shall meet the requirements included in the ICAO document entitled "CORSIA Eligibility Framework and Requirements for Sustainability Certification Schemes".
Applications by SCSs will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. SCSs interested in being approved by the ICAO Council should complete the following application form and send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information may be requested during the evaluation process.

The evaluation process of these applications is ongoing. SCSs approved by the ICAO Council will be included in the ICAO document "CORSIA approved Sustainability Certification Schemes", to be made available in the CORSIA website.
