DGCAs Various Proactive Initiatives to Offset Higher Aviation Related Emissions

Delhi 

The Ministry of Civil Aviation, with the approval of Union Cabinet, expressed its reservations on capping of aviation emissions at 2020 level during the 39th session of International Civil Aviation Organizations Assembly. India's reservation primarily emanated from the Paris agreement, which recognized that the developing countries will take longer to reach its peak emission. In the recent 39th ICAO General Assembly meeting, India opposed the global market based mechanism as it will adversely affect the growth of aviation sector in developing nations.

The estimated emission from Indian scheduled airline operators for the year 2015 is around 14.6 million tonnes.Directorate General of Civil Aviation has taken various proactive initiatives to offset the higher aviation related emissions and CAR (Civil Aviation Requirement) in this regard is issued time to time.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Shri Jayant Sinha in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
