Description Aircraft noise affects communities living around airports and under flightpaths. ICSA work on this.

ICSA is a member of the technical committee of ICAO that develops recommendations on the rules that would govern such a global Market Based Measures and the eligibility of carbon credits.

Objectives Many of these measures are the responsibility of industry, local authorities, and national governments, but ICAO, through its Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP), sets standards to regulate aircraft noise, and NOx and PM emissions within the landing and take-off cycle. Guidance also exists to tackle air quality at airports and states are encouraged to use the ‘balanced approach’ to aircraft noise management.

The stringency of these standards is periodically reviewed by CAEP. ICSA engages in these discussions to highlight community concerns and press for the most environmentally-effective outcomes.

Activities ICSA works on cutting climate pollution by:

Market based measures, Promoting cleaner aircrafts, Science based cuts, Sustainable aviation fuels, Taxation and charges
