Who’s Missing The Mark On Emissions?

The world aviation sector is well on its way to meeting the planned fuel-efficiency targets set for 2020. Despite the Aviation Week Leading Edge column to the contrary (AW&ST Sept. 14-27, p. 19), ICCAIA, IATA, IBAC and GAMA agree that the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) fuel-efficiency goals are within reach and supported by the aviation industry’s strong record to date and commitments going forward.

Four industry groups wrote this collective statement on fuel efficiency and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Associations (ICCAIA) is the global organization of aerospace industry associations. The International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) 250 member airlines account for 83% of the world’s air traffic. The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) represents and promotes business aviation industry. And the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) is a group of 80 of the world’s leading manufacturers of general aviation aircraft, engines, avionics, components and related services.

AIA Director for Environmental Policy Leslie Riegle played an active role in drafting and editing the piece and coordinating among the four signatory organizations.
