New course category: Environment
24 March 2017
JAA TO is proud to announce that it has added Environment as a new course category to its portfolio. During the 39th ICAO Assembly last year, all attending countries agreed to the Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), another step towards a more sustainable industry. JAA TO proudly joins this trend by launching this new category, including two new courses:
- Market-Based Measures for Emissions Reduction
This course will give participants an understanding of the various types of Market-Based Measures and the development of ICAO policy on their use to reduce aviation emissions. They will also understand the application of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme to aviation emissions and they will have knowledge of the CORSIA scheme and the reasons for its selection by ICAO as the preferred MBM for the reduction of international aviation emissions.
- Climate Change Awareness
On completion of the course, participants will have an understanding of the causes and implications of climate change, on the basis of the best current information. They will have knowledge of how the international community is addressing this important issue, in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and taking steps to mitigate or adapt to climate change effects.
