10 May 2016

In his brief remarks to the Global Sustainable Aviation Forum in Montreal on 10 May 2016, CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, said that CANSO is a strong supporter of the aviation industry strategy to address its climate change impacts. While the focus of the Forum was on global market based measures, Poole stressed that air traffic management (ATM) has a vital role to play in reducing carbon emissions and thus reduce the extent of coverage of carbon offsets.

States also have a vital role to play in three areas: investing in ATM infrastructure; modernising air navigation services by implementing the Aviation System Block Upgrades; and harmonising airspace.
