ICAO Stocktaking Seminar on aviation in-sector CO2 emissions reductions
8-11 September 2020
Montreal, Canada [now virtual]
The 2020 Virtual ICAO Stocktaking Seminar will consider innovative solutions to unlock current and future CO2 aviation emissions reduction potentials. It will cover all areas for in-sector reductions, including technology, operations and sustainable aviation fuels. The seminar will build upon the success of the first ICAO Stocktaking Seminar towards the 2050 Vision for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFS 2019), which provided a forum for the exchange of information and was the first step towards the establishment of a quantified 2050 ICAO Vision for Sustainable Aviation Fuels. While the 2020 Stocktaking Seminar will provide an opportunity to continue this quantification, the scope of the stocktaking process has been expanded to cover all innovations that will lead to in-sector CO2 emissions reductions.
Given that the event represents a major cornerstone in the international efforts towards investigating the feasibility of a long term aspirational goal (LTAG) for international aviation, ICAO is encouraging all stakeholders to complete an ICAO Stocktaking 2020 Questionnaire on their CO2 reduction initiatives, which will be used to support the ICAO LTAG process. Innovators with a vision for the sustainable future of aviation are encouraged to be part of this process, which will enable all stakeholders to share their innovations through the 2020 ICAO Stocktaking Seminar, whether they be from technology, fuels or operations, so that they are showcased to an international audience and considered in the LTAG process.
Governments, airlines, airports, fuel producers, manufacturers, environmental groups, energy companies, financial groups, research institutions, civil society and all interested parties are encouraged to be part of this movement to lead the way forward in forging the future for sustainable aviation. You can participate in a number of ways through speaking opportunities, the submissions of a video and completed questionnaire, or through sponsorship of the event.

ATAG 2020 Global Sustainable Aviation Forum – Green Recovery
29 September 2020
Geneva, Switzerland [now virtual]
Due to the uncertainty associated with Covid-19, the annual Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) meeting will now be an online event on September 29 (with a possible extension to September 30). There will be a range of panels, presentations, interviews, a significantly reduced delegate fee and the option to participate live and to view recordings of sessions afterwards. Delegates will be able to hear from industry leaders and experts about aviation’s green recovery commitment; learn how the industry will meet its long-term carbon goal; and find out about new aircraft designs, engine technology, low emissions combustion materials and electric aircraft from aircraft manufacturers. The event will bring together industry, governments and the energy and finance sectors to discuss accelerating the energy transition in aviation and also explore aviation’s role in combating wildlife trafficking and how this can prevent the spread of viruses.
The 13th Biofuels International Conference & Expo will bring together leading producers, suppliers, regulators and other engaged organisations over a two-day period. High-level speakers, experts in their field, will address a range of topical issues relating to the biofuels sector. As usual, it will cover large-scale aviation biofuels: examining the challenges and future potential. Organised by international biofuels magazine Biofuels International, the 2021 conference will be held again in Brussels, and co-located with the International Biogas Congress & Expo as well as the Biomass Congress & Expo, giving participants exceptional coverage.
