EASA addresses aviation’s impact on climate change

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) proposes today that newly designed aeroplane types meet a CO2 standard from the 1st of January 2020, and that aeroplane types already in-production meet a separate CO2 standard starting from the 1st of January 2023.

The objective of this so-called ‘Opinion’ published on 7 November 2017 by EASA is to incentivise the incorporation of the latest fuel efficiency technology into aeroplane designs, and to address the predicted increase in CO2 emissions.

The Opinion submitted to the European Commission also includes a new Particulate Matter emissions standard for aircraft engines from the 1st of January 2020.
