ACI Media Releases
Montréal, Québec, CANADA, 18 September 2012 – At the 22nd ACI World General Assembly in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the world’s airports unanimously supported a resolution to urge states, all sectors of industry and other stakeholders to work collaboratively and provide their renewed commitment to work through the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to reach agreement on a single global market based measure to reduce aviation’s impact on the environment before the 38th ICAO Assembly. The world’s airports also recognized the contributions that airports can make to being part of the solution.
Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World stated, “The sustainable growth of aviation is essential to the future social and economic growth of communities worldwide and to facilitate greater cooperation and understanding among the world’s citizens and states. With agreement reached by the world’s airports to work with and through ICAO towards a solution to minimize the global environmental impact of aviation, the airport community has spoken and asserted that there is no other party better suited to this task”.
