IATA Carbon Markets and Aviation aviation training course

This course will provide a brief history of airlines’ and IATA’s action to address climate, as well as the evolution of CORSIA (Carbon Offset and Reductions Scheme for International Aviation) at ICAO. Within the context of aviation, we will also review both compliance and voluntary carbon markets, examine how carbon credits are created, the types and locations of carbon offset programs and projects, review the standards that exist for validation/verification of carbon credits, review the international standards and recommended practice that have been approved to date, by ICAO for CORSIA compliance, and understand how carbon offsets and allowances are bought and traded.
