Event Title

Session 6: Airline industry’s sustainability for climate change

Presenter Information

Jae Woon (June ) Lee

Synopsis

The greenhouse gas emissions generated by the airline industry have had a significant impact on global climate change, and the key question is how to reduce that impact. Although the general public disproportionately focuses on air travel without adequately considering more significant factors behind rising carbon dioxide levels such as electricity and heating, climate change is one of the greatest concerns of our time and the airline industry must act responsibly. Minimizing the adverse environmental effects of aviation activities has been a global priority in the area of aviation regulation, including ICAO’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). This presentation will discuss diverse regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to minimizing the adverse environmental effects by the airline industry.
