Second ICAO Conference on Aviation and Alternative Fuels

11-13 October 2017

Mexico City, Mexico


Resolution A39-2 passed at the 39th Session of the ICAO Assembly reaffirmed the need for alternative fuels to be developed and deployed in an economically, socially and environmentally acceptable manner. States are encouraged to take action at national and international levels. This conference will build upon the results of the ICAO Alternative Fuels Seminar held in February 2017, and of the First ICAO Conference on Aviation and Alternative Fuels held in November 2009, which endorsed the use of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation as an important means of reducing aviation emissions and established the ICAO Global Framework for Aviation Alternative Fuels.


The conference will consider recommendations for action on key topics including developments in research and certification, financing and assistance programmes, challenges and policy making, and defining the ICAO vision on aviation alternative fuels and future objectives.

Aircraft Noise – Can We Build Community Tolerance?

12 October 2017

London, UK


The Royal Aeronautical Society’s annual Greener by Design conference will this year focus on aircraft noise and the challenge of getting community engagement, understanding and ultimately tolerance at a time of growing and modernised airspace operation near busiest airports. The conference will look at the issue from the recipient’s perspective, hear of the latest research, share experience from the consultative front-line and seek a better understanding of the issues and potential mitigating measures. This event should be a timely opportunity for all parts of the aviation industry, local authorities and community groups, together with government, regulators and academics with an interest in noise.

Aviation Carbon 2017

4-5 December 2017

London, United Kingdom


Following on from two previous successful conferences in 2012 and 2013, this year’s event will again bring the aviation and carbon markets together to discuss and hear from experts on the planning and implementation of ICAO’s global Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). It will also look at the implications for other carbon schemes affecting aviation such as the EU ETS, and critical issues such as Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) requirements and which carbon offsets are likely to be eligible under CORSIA. The conference will be of interest to airlines and the wider aviation industry, carbon markets, MRV specialists, NGOs, industry consultants, regulators and civil aviation authorities.
