Aviation and the Environment with ATAG Global Sustainable Aviation Summit (Classroom, 5 days)


DescriptionPrices & Registration

About

Be fully up-to-date on aviation environmental and sustainable issues and their management, with a special emphasis on new technology, improved operations and modernized methods of airspace and airport management. As a unique opportunity, participants to this course will also attend the ATAG 2017 Global Sustainable Aviation Summit and exchange views on its main conclusions.

Coming one year after ICAO’s historic decision to adopt the Carbon Reduction and Offsetting Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), the mechanism by which aviation will achieve its stated goal of carbon neutral growth (CNG), the Summit will combine high-level discussions and breakout sessions on the implementation of CORSIA, as well as other issues relating to the sustainable development of aviation.

Participants registered for this session will receive a free pass to the ATAG 2017 Global Sustainable Aviation Summit, in Geneva on 3-4 October 2017. ATAG’s Global Sustainable Aviation Summit is being organised in collaboration with the industry’s key associations (ACI, IATA, CANSO and ICCAIA). This well-established event will bring together over 300 leaders and experts from the aviation industry and beyond.
