The world has finally agreed on a long-term plan to curb carbon emissions from flying.
”At a meeting in Montreal, the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), pledged to support an ”aspirational” net zero aviation goal by 2050. The plan, seen as a compromise by many, was accepted by the 193 countries who are members of ICAO.”
”While it is not a global regulator of the airline industry, ICAO is the UN body that promotes co-operation among member states on air transport. It cannot impose rules on countries, but national governments usually abide by what is agreed at ICAO meetings.”
”At the ICAO triennial assembly in Montreal, member states finally agreed to support a net zero target for 2050, despite grumbles from China and Russia.”
