AAJ | Climate Change


Air Transport Action Group, is the only global industry-wide body to bring together all aviation industry players so that they can speak with one voice – and it works to promote aviation’s sustainable growth for the benefit of our global society.


ATAG’s existence is entirely dependent upon funding from its members. These include airports, airlines, airframe and engine manufacturers, air navigation service providers, airline pilot and air traffic controller unions, chambers of commerce, tourism and trade partners, ground transportation and communications providers. The diversity of ATAG’s membership adds to its credibility and high level of influence with international decision-makers.


ATAG has some 40 members worldwide. Its funding members play a driving role within ATAG and devote substantive time and resources to the association. They include: Airports Council International (ACI), Airbus, ATR, Boeing, Bombardier, Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), CFM International, Embraer, GE, Honeywell Aerospace, International Air Transport Association (IATA), Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce and Safran.


Commiment to Climate Change

In 2008, leaders from across the industry gathered at ATAG’s Avaiation and Environemyn Simmit to deliver a stratigic vision for avaiation’s sustainable development. This unprecedented commitment was the first stage in a process guided by ATAG, which saw aviation become the first global transport industry to have a long-term plan to tackle its climate change impact. This commitment by the industry has placed aviation a step ahead of many other industries and provided the impetus towards the United Nation’s International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) historic decision to introduce a regulatory framework to reduce aviation’s emissions in 2016.
