The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing some 290 airlines or 82% of total air traffic.
IATA supports many areas of aviation activity and help formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues, including environmental concerns.
In partnership with industry stakeholders and governments, IATA is focused on developing sensible environmental policies to enable and promote sustainable and eco-efficient air transport. In order to further reduce aviation’s impact on the environment, IATA has set up several programs to assist airlines in improving their environmental performance. IATA recognizes the need to address the global challenge of climate change and adopted a set of targets to mitigate CO2 emissions from air transport.
