|November 1, 2011 - Marrakech, Morocco – Yesterday at the ACI World 21st Annual General Assembly, members unanimously passed a resolution urging ICAO to intervene with regard to the proposed European Union Emissions Trading Scheme. Airports recognize the risk to trade conflict and are extremely concerned about the potential negative affects this would bring to international air transport.|
“ICAO is the international authority in matters involving civil aviation and we believe it is correct to have them intervene and resolve this conflict before the scheme is implemented”, said ACI Director General Angela Gittens.
The members noted that the 2009 ICAO High Level Meeting on Environment declared that ICAO would establish a process to develop a framework for Market Based Measures in international aviation. Respecting this guidance, all parties should work collaboratively to develop this framework.
