Global Sustainable aviation Summit 2017

Geneva, 3-4 October 2017. 

Organised by ATAG, in partnership with IATA, ACI, CANSO and ICCAIA, the 2017 Summit comes exactly one year after the historic agreement at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to institute the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). 

With this agreement, aviation will be able to achieve its goal of carbon-neutral growth.  Now that CORSIA has been agreed upon, the 2017 Summit will look towards the long-term future of aviation and how the industry can develop in a sustainable manner.

The 2017 Summit will bring together over 300 aviation leaders and experts to discuss driving sustainable growth in aviation, sustainable aviation fuels, technology’s contribution to the 2050 goal to reduce aviation’s net CO2 emissions, and long-term challenges according to industry leaders. These will largely be addressed though interactive panel debates.
