Where will the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) fly? 

11 November, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM (CET)

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the aviation sector. The crisis has not only reduced aviation demand in the short-term but may have a lasting impact on the sector. This will also affect the future of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the ICAO Council recently decided to change CORSIA’s baseline to 2019 for the pilot phase from 2021 to 2023. The overall goal and design of CORSIA will also be reviewed in 2022. At the same time, the EU will deliberate how to amend its emissions trading system (ETS) to implement (CORSIA) in a way that is consistent with the EU’s 2030 climate objectives.
