The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) said it reached a “‘historic agreement'” last week on aviation safety, security and aircraft emissions.
The deal reached by the 190 members of the Montreal-based United Nations organization at its 37th general assembly “‘builds on achievements since the last ICAO Assembly in 2007,'” the communication said, “‘which included a global goal of 2 per cent annual fuel efficiency improvement up to the year 2050, a global framework for the development and deployment of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation, and a target of 2013 for a CO2 standard for aircraft engines.'”
It also states that “‘ICAO will coordinate the collection, analysis and exchange of aviation safety information among exchange members and disseminate to the global aviation community.'”
