Air Transport Action Group (ATAG)

In 2016, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) adopted CORSIA, a global carbon offsetting scheme to address CO2 emissions from international aviation. The agreement at ICAO demonstrates that the aviation industry is determined to live up to its climate change commitments and play its part in meeting international goals for greenhouse gas emissions reduction. CORSIA is one part of the aviation sector’s climate action. How does it work and what does it cover? Find out about CORSIA in this factsheet.
