ABSTRACT
The article reports that 191 member states of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) signed an agreement in October 2016 to launch Corsia (carbon-offsetting scheme for international aviation) which is likely to help in the development of the aviation alternative fuels market and reduction of emissions. Corsia which will be implemented from 2021, will allow airlines to reduce the cost of carbon offsetting by using sustainable biofuels.
