Organizer: The Shift Project

Date: Tue / Dec. 8 - 16:30

Time: 16:30

Area: Green Zone

Summary of the Session:

How can air transport, responsible for 3% of CO2 emissions, play its role in the fight against climate change ? Proposed by the Coalition of Rainforest Nations, the implementation of a mechanism between the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and REDD + (UNFCCC) could enable airlines to compensate their emissions through financing forest conservation and rehabilitation. A realistic and affordable system for a global and competitive industry : flying could help protect the forests.
