  • Published by Ozgur Tore

wttc2The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) calls on all nation states to reach an agreement on the Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) General Assembly in Montreal.

David Scowsill, President & CEO, WTTC, said: “CORSIA is an extremely important, if not mandatory step towards the aviation industry’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions. The scheme embodies the cooperation across the industry and across the public and private sector, something WTTC strongly believes in. We urge all governments to follow the lead of over 60 countries who already indicated their participation in the scheme, and ensure that this global and momentous agreement is reached.”

“In the face of climate change, and increasing demands for the sustainable growth of Travel & Tourism, we need to embrace and act upon this initiative to ensure we preserve the assets the world has to offer.” Scowsill added.”
