Public consultation on compensation for CO₂ emissions on international flights will be carried out by ANAC

Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) reported on October 19 that it took another step towards reducing the environmental impact caused by the airline sector, by starting a public consultation on the new regulation for monitoring and compensating carbon dioxide emissions (CO₂) on international flights. The decision was taken during the 16th Meeting of the Collegiate Board of Directors, and will soon be published in the Official Gazette (DOU). This regulation, in the form of a resolution, incorporates into the Brazilian legal system the mechanism known as CORSIA (Carbon Offseting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation). Brazil is a signatory to this mechanism, approved in 2016 by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The main objective of CORSIA is to compensate, in the period from 2024 to 2035, emissions from international aviation that exceed the values ​​recorded in 2020, without compromising the sector’s growth. To achieve this end, two regulations were proposed: a resolution with requirements for monitoring, reporting, and verifying CO₂ emissions, as well as calculations of compensation obligations for air operators; and an ordinance that establishes the form and procedures for complying with the requirements for monitoring these emissions. – ttps://aeroin.net/consulta-publica-sobre-compensacao-de-emissoes-de-co%e2%82%82-em-voos-internacionais-sera-realiza-pela-anac/
