ANAC approves resolution to monitor and compensate CO₂ emissions on international flights

On May 16, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) reported that it took an important step to make Brazilian aviation more sustainable, as it was unanimously approved at a meeting of the Collegiate Board of Directors, a resolution that regulates the monitoring and compensation of carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions on international flights. The new rules come into force on January 1, 2025. The regulation incorporates into the Brazilian legal system the CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation). Brazil is a signatory to this mechanism approved in 2016 by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). According to ANAC, CORSIA’s objective is to compensate – in the period from 2024 to 2035 – emissions from international aviation that exceed 85% of the values ​​recorded in 2019, without compromising the sector’s growth. But routes involving Brazil will only count for compensation purposes from 2027 onwards. The resolution defines the requirements for monitoring, reporting and verifying CO₂ emissions, and calculating the compensation obligations of air operators. – https://aeroin.net/anac-aprova-resolucao-para-monitoramento-e-compensacao-de-emissoes-de-co%e2%82%82-em-voos-internacionais/
