Environmental concern about climate change, gaseous emissions and noise is becoming an increasingly important political, economic and social issue for aviation. Tackling the environmental issue is the latest major challenge facing global aviation. Although aviation represents only 2% of global CO2 emissions, air transport generates 0.6 billion tonnes of CO2 a year.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is a global leader in environmental aviation matters, having developed a range of standards, policies and guidance material for the application of integrated measures by member states. These address aircraft noise and ​emissions embracing technological improvements, operating procedures, proper organization of air traffic, appropriate airport and land-use planning, and the use of market-based options. ICAO has published its 2016 Environmental Report - On Board a Sustainable Future. Click here to read the report.
