Carbon Neutrality, Reduction and Offset-Aviation Solutions in the 21st Century 2021-01-0039

Begun in 2016, the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) was developed and agreed by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 191 Member States, while the Airport Carbon Accreditation was developed by the Airports, Council International Europe as a carbon management system and certification. The aviation industry has its own offsetting scheme to measure aviation emissions and carbon offsetting and it has become the first industry sector which leads the world making commitments to reduce emissions. CORSIA and the Airport Carbon Accreditation are programs that impose carbon management obligations on the aviation industry. The training product to be presented, will clarify for the first time how to go beyond mere compliance and exceed the carbon reduction requirements of these instruments by achieving carbon neutrality in operations, to decrease costs, boost revenue, productivity and customer experience for airlines, airports and ground service providers. The methodology that will be explained for achieving carbon neutrality involves gains in operational efficiency and the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) to reduce carbon in operations, and investment in reforestation and conservation projects (forest carbon credits) to offset emissions. Innovative practices and benefits of communicating with customers and the public about carbon neutral goals, milestones and achievements will be shared and explained. This training will describe how carbon neutrality when done right decreases operational costs, reduces health and safety risks, lowers environmental risks, and generates new revenue and sales through brand trust, customer loyalty and revenue science. For the very first time, tools, technologies and solutions on how to transition to a low-cost, high-revenue producing carbon neutral operations model for airlines, airports and ground service providers will be presented.
