Over 2,500 delegates from 184 States and 57 organizations at the 41st ICAO Assembly, ICAO Member States have adopted a collective long-term global aspirational goal (LTAG) of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and new agreements on safety andcyber resilience.
“The achievement of the LTAG will rely on the combined effect of multiple CO2 emissions reduction measures, including the accelerated adoption of new and innovative aircraft technologies, streamlined flight operations, and the increased production and deployment of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF),” said an ICAO press release.
“States’ adoption of this new long term goal for decarbonized air transport, following the similar commitments from industry groups, will contribute importantly to the green innovation and implementation momentum which must be accelerated over the coming decades to ultimately achieve emissions free powered flight,” said the President of the ICAO Council Mr. Salvatore Sciacchitano.
States also endorsed the latest editions of ICAO’s Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) and Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP). “
“The endorsement of the latest editions of ICAO’s GASP and GANP will bring the aviation community together around common targets and pathways to achieve an agile, safe, secure, sustainable, high-performing and interoperable global air transport system,” remarked ICAO Council President Salvatore Sciacchitano.
“I am particularly encouraged that the cyber resilience of safety critical systems is a key priority in the next edition of the GANP,” he emphasized.
