The International Air Transport Association (IATA) welcomed progress by states towards a long-term aspirational goal (LTAG) of net-zero aviation carbon emissions by 2050 in line with the Paris Agreement’s temperature objectives.

This is stated in the summary of discussions for the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) High-Level Meeting held in preparation for the 41st ICAO Assembly later this year.
The ICAO High-Level Meeting’s help of a long-term goal for states that is in line with the aviation sector’s net-zero by 2050 commitment is a step in the right direction.
That’s critical for the aviation industry. Knowing that government policies will help the same goal and timeline globally will enable the sector, mainly its suppliers, to make the required investments to decarbonize,” told Willie Walsh, International Civil Aviation Organization ( IATA)’s Director General.

Sustainable aviation fuels
In October 2021, International Civil Aviation Organization (IATA) member airlines committed to net zero emissions by 2050. The path to achieving this will affect a combination of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), the latest propulsion technology, infrastructure, operational efficiencies, and carbon offsets/carbon capture to seal any gaps.
“Net zero by 2050 will require a global transition for aviation to new fuels, technologies, and operations. The significant investments to get there will require a solid policy foundation aligned with a global way forward.
That is why it is so important for states to carry the momentum of the High-Level Meeting through to a formal deal at the 41st ICAO Assembly in a few weeks,” stated Walsh.
