From January 2025, Brazil will monitor CO2 emission compensation on international flights

In May, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) published Resolution #743/2024, which regulates the monitoring and compensation of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on international flights. These rules come into force on January 1, 2025 and apply to companies that emit, in one year, an amount exceeding ten thousand tons of CO2 during the international flight phase, in vehicles weighing over 5,700 kilos. “There is a clear objective of making Brazilian aviation more sustainable, following a movement carried out globally. Not surprisingly, this regulation follows several principles of CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation), a program of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) created for this purpose. In this way, Brazil incorporates several of these rules into its legislation and complies with international standards”, says Nahima Razuk, lawyer and partner at Razuk Barreto Valiati. A signatory to CORSIA since 2016, Brazil took a leap towards more sustainable aviation with the publication of Resolution #743/2024. In this context, effective emissions compensation must follow the emission units provided for in international rules. Furthermore, this operation must be based on the planned three-year conformation cycles: 2024-2026, 2027-2029, 2030-2032, and 2033-2035. Furthermore, the air operator will be obliged to maintain these emissions and compensation data for a minimum period of ten years, in a secure, accessible, and traceable way. In case of infraction, companies may suffer a financial penalty of BRL 25,000. The airline will need to carry out an Emissions Monitoring Plan, which must receive approval from ANAC. If the Monitoring Plan is not submitted to ANAC, companies can be fined BRL 84,000, and if monitoring is not complied with (even partially), the fine can reach BRL 120,000. Each ton of CO2 not compensated will cost BRL 50. – https://aeroin.net/a-partir-de-janeiro-de-2025-brasil-vai-monitorar-a-compensacao-de-emissao-de-co2-em-voos-internacionais/
