As anticipated earlier this year, IETA and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have entered into an MoU to cooperate in the development and execution of regional workshops for airlines on compliance with the Global Market-Based Measure (GMBM) recently agreed by ICAO.
The workshops focused on sharing best practices and lessons learned on carbon markets and MRV compliance from IETA members directly with IATA member company airlines and aircraft operators.
IETA members were provided with a key opportunity to help shape industry preparations and perspectives on carbon markets as the GMBM and its CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction System for International Aviation) move into an implementation phase.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PARTICIPATION TO THESE WORKSHOPS IS LIMITED TO IETA AND IATA MEMBERS ONLY.
The dates and locations for the IETA-IATA aviation carbon market workshops are as follows:
1. Nairobi, February 14 – 15
2. Geneva, February 28 – March 1
3. Miami, March 14 – 15
4. Singapore, March 22 – 23

Ecosphere+ is a new venture founded by the Althelia Climate Fund created to build markets that put a value on carbon and incentivise sustainable business models. It is our mission to scale up financing to protect our most valuable climate assets; forest landscapes. Alongside a transition to a low-carbon energy system, we simply cannot achieve a safe climate without significant efforts to halt and reverse land-based emissions. Doing this will not only deliver much needed emissions reductions but also major environmental and societal benefits too. The critical tool is a price on carbon coupled with responsible supply-chains.
