2018 ICAO CORSIA Implementation Plan Brochure

3 This brochure from the UN based International Civil Aviation Organisation presents the key elements and milestones of the aviation industry’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). The plan sets a non-binding commitment to ensure that all growth in the aviation industry after 2020 is carbon neutral, through fuel efficiency gains and the purchase of carbon offsets.




In 2019-20 efforts were underway to establish the emissions baseline for individual airline companies, when COVID caused demand for flights to collapse almost entirely, casting doubt over when the CORSIA scheme will actually commence.
