Seas At Risk supports aviation GHG push

Brussels, 19th May 2009. As part of its work to include transport bunker fuels in the December 2009 Copenhagen climate change agreement, Seas At Risk has signed up to a joint-NGO submission to the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA).

The submission has been coordinated by the International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation and will be considered by the ICAA at the fourth meeting of its International Aviation and Climate Group (GIACC) which takes place in Montréal from the 25-27th May 2009.

While Seas At Risk normally works on emissions from shipping the issues surrounding emissions from aviation are similar to those of marine bunker fuels, and many of the groups in the joint-NGO work on shipping are also involved in the joint-NGO work on aviation issues.

Joint NGO submission to GIACC (20/5/09).
