Air cargo body welcomes emission plan

February 6 - The commitment by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to produce a proposal to regulate global airline emissions by the end of 2012 has been welcome by the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG).

To date, GACAG has been critical of the EU's emissions trading scheme and has campaigned for multilateral efforts to develop international CO2 emissions standards within ICAO. This is in keeping with the recommendations of The Kyoto Protocol which designated ICAO as the body with authority to set international aviation's greenhouse gas policy.

Chairman Michael Steen said: "We welcome this announcement by ICAO's secretary general, Raymond Benjamin. We will support ICAO in this initiative and push to ensure the deadline for the end of this year is achieved. GACAG urges the European Commission to 'come to the table' and to work with ICAO towards this global goal."
