ANAC establishes Environmental Action Policy

On Monday, April 3, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency’s (ANAC, in Portuguese) Environmental Action Policy was instituted. The standard was published in the Federal Official Gazette (DOU, also in Portuguese), on March 29, through Normative Instruction #188, which also established the Agency’s Environmental Committee and the Aviation Environmental Network. The measures represent an important milestone for the agency and its commitment to guide the aviation sector towards sustainable development, with respect for the environment. The Environmental Action Policy seeks to mitigate the impact of civil aviation on the environment, notably with regard to the decarbonization of the sector, the reduction of pollutant emissions and noise in aircraft and their operations, the sustainable use of airport infrastructure and the encouragement of use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), based on the tripod of guidelines, governance, and knowledge management. – https://www.gov.br/anac/pt-br/noticias/2023/anac-estabelece-politica-de-atuacao-ambiental#:~:text=A%20Pol%C3%ADtica%20de%20Atua%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20Ambiental%20busca%20a%20mitiga%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20do%20impacto,incentivo%20ao%20uso%20de%20Combust%C3%ADveis
