Sustainable alternative fuels are a key element of the strategy
toward reducing the carbon footprint of aviation.
This ICAO Workshop is an opportunity to enhance dialogue among
States, financial institutions, fuel producers and operators regarding
access to financing for sustainable alternative fuels projects.
Building upon the achievements of the ICAO Workshop and Conference
on Aviation and Alternative Fuels held in 2009, and the results
of the 37th Session of the ICAO Assembly in 2010, this ICAO Workshop
provides a forum for the exchange of information on the state of
worldwide activities on sustainable alternative fuels for aviation.
Among others, discussions will revolve around the state of the global
harmonization of life cycle analysis methodologies, sustainability
criteria, and legal and regulatory frameworks which ensure the availability
of supplies of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation.
The Workshop, an important milestone in preparation for the upcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June next year, will also address the role of sustainable alternative
fuels as part of the measures available to States for inclusion
in their action plans to reduce CO2 emissions.
