Learn the fundamentals of carbon markets and sustainable alternative fuels (SAF) and their essential roles in the future of aviation. Sustainable alternative fuel and carbon markets are expected to play a larger role for the aviation industry as ICAO Member States begin to implement the Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). This course will allow you to analyze carbon market dynamics, strategies and pricing, and understand the environmental impacts of SAF. Using cost-benefit analysis, you will also learn about the financial implications of SAF to airline operations, supply chain logistics, and emissions trading schemes.
This classroom course provides 2 days (16 hours) of instruction delivered by an official IATA Instructor.
