Since 1972 and the opening of the Stockholm Convention
on the Human Environment, World Environment Day has been celebrated every 5th of June as an initiative to stimulate global
awareness of environmental issues and encourage action.
ICAO is marking this celebration with a series of initiatives:
by the President of the ICAO Council, Mr. Salvatore Sciacchitano, on the
occasion of World Environment Day 2020.
Launch of ICAO TV next week will contain videos related to ICAO’s work on
environmental protection, including recordings of the recent ICAO Online Stocktaking Preview:
Reducing Aviation In-Sector CO₂ Emissions, which
was a precursor to the upcoming ICAO Stocktaking Seminar on
aviation in-sector CO₂ emissions reductions
(8 to 10 September 2020).
• The Stocktaking
process calls on all States and Stakeholders to provide quantified information
on their aviation in-sector CO₂ emissions
reductions, which will feed into ICAO’s work on assessing the feasibility of a long-term
aspirational goal for aviation. You can contribute to this work by
completing a Questionnaire on your
innovative CO₂ emissions reductions measures for aviation.
• ICAO is showcasing
the initiatives of the sector to reduce its CO₂
emissions through the ICAO Sustainable Aviation Coalition
website and the new aviation CO₂
Emissions Reduction Initiatives Tracker Tool. This tool aims to
collate all measures being taken by stakeholders in reducing CO₂
emissions from aviation and supports ICAO`s work to establish a long-term
aspirational goal for international aviation.
• On 15 June 2020, ICAO
will officially deploy the CORSIA Central Registry
(CCR), which is one of the five Implementation Elements of CORSIA. Its purpose
is to enable States fulfill their reporting requirements in accordance with Annex
16, Volume IV in five key areas: aeroplane operators, verification bodies, CO₂
emissions, CORSA eligible fuels, and cancelled emissions units, by facilitating
the submission of CORSIA-specific information and data to ICAO. Reporting using
the CCR will start in the second part of 2020 with States submitting CO₂
emissions for the year 2019 based on verified emissions reports from aeroplane
