This second seminar will address new and emerging issues in the field of airport management and environmental best practices. It will reflect the diverse range of activities involved in the management of a ‘green airport’, including climate change adaptation, renewable energy, community engagement and sustainability reporting. In addition, the circular economy and the financing of environmental projects and mitigation measures will be explored, with emphasis on the perspective from South American regional stakeholders.
Organised by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), this event will bring together the world’s aviation community to discuss the sustainable development of aviation. Delegates will hear the views of specialists and experts, and participate in interactive panel sessions on the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), sustainable aviation fuels, aviation’s role in sustainable mobility and noise management.
The fifth triennial Symposium, ‘Destination Green: The Next Chapter’, will present an opportunity to gain knowledge and share information on key areas of ICAO’s environmental protection activities, leading up to the 40th Session of the ICAO Assembly. It will encompass the outcomes of key ICAO environmental events, including the Eleventh Meeting of the Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP/11), the 2019 ICAO CORSIA Regional Workshops and the 2019 ICAO Seminar on Green Airports, as well as developments on ICAO State Action Plans and capacity-building activities, environmental trends, noise and local air quality, sustainable aviation fuels and climate change adaptation.
The Symposium will also provide an opportunity to inform on the progress and achievements set out in preceding Assembly Resolutions on environmental protection and will provide a setting for ICAO’s stakeholders to gain greater insight on emerging issues.
This one-day workshop is organised by Heriot-Watt University, which is undertaking the Low Carbon Jet Fuel project. The programme will include insights and technical presentations by experts on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) development. It will look at the essential steps needed for the UK to seize the opportunities to grow a SAF industry and identify opportunities for collaboration and funding.

Aviation Carbon 2019
4-5 November 2019
This annual event brings together the aviation, carbon market and NGO sectors, plus policymakers, to inform and discuss the latest developments in addressing aviation’s climate impact. A strong focus at this year’s conference will be looking back on how airlines and business jet operators have dealt with the monitoring and reporting provisions of the global ICAO CORSIA scheme for international aviation that became effective in January and also important developments over the past year at ICAO concerning the environmental integrity of the scheme. The conference will also cover aircraft and alternative fuel technologies aimed at reducing aviation emissions.
Registration details and more information will be available shortly here
