Is your airline ready for CORSIA?

From 2019 on, almost all airlines with international flights will have an obligation to participate in the Carbon Offsetting Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) managed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and its Member States. Under CORSIA, international flight operators will be required to purchase carbon credits to offset the growth in CO2 emissions covered by the Scheme commencing in 2021.

Upcoming CORSIA Deadlines:

  • May 31, 2020 – Submit the first verified Emissions Report (ER) based on the Emissions Monitoring Plan (EMP) to the applicable Member State regulatory agency
  • January 1, 2021 – Eligible operators will be required to offset a portion of their annual carbon emissions according to CORSIA targets

Climate Futures can help you manage CORSIA participation:

  • We can supply CORSIA eligible carbon credits/offsets for your operations
  • By utilizing 1PLANET, carbon offsets can be delivered by customers
  • Our team can help assess alternative fuel options to lower your fleet’s carbon emissions

Contact us to discuss your CORSIA needs.

Need help navigating a Paris Agreement World?

On January 1, 2020, the Paris Agreement enters into force and it will impact the vast majority of our global economy. Even the USA will still technically participate as the timeline for withdrawal leaves the USA in the Paris Agreement until at least November 4, 2020one day after the 2020 Presidential election.

The Paris Agreement will create a complex global landscape of policy measures to limit and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from many sectors of the economy.

Using a different architecture than the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement allows nations to develop bi-lateral and multi-lateral policies and carbon markets. In addition, it contains the Article 6 market-based mechanisms for compliance, e.g., the Sustainable Development Mechanism (SDM)the successor to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)which will eventually create a new type of carbon credit and climate projects.

In December at COP 25 in Santiago, Chile, decisions will be taken to establish the rules and procedures for the Paris Agreement market mechanisms and the SDM. These decisions could have consequences for your business and any carbon-reducing projects you are planning.

Contact us to leverage 20 years of experience in navigating the impacts and opportunities of climate policies on business operations.
