How to ensure zero emissions for the aviation industry – NCAA DG

As Africa strives to define a common position on the green economy ambitions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) LTAG Compliance Framework, the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Captain Musa Nuhu said the Fly-2-Green Nigeria initiative would pave the way for ecosystem conservation programs.

He said this would lead to baseline measurable and verifiable carbon sinks across the Great Green Wall and wetlands of Nigeria to secure up to one million tonnes of voluntary carbon emission reductions, thus facilitating a footprint net zero for the entire Nigerian aviation industry. .

In its Green-Sky-Green Nigeria to Fly-2-Green Nigeria program on the theme: “Green Flight to Eco-System Conservation in Nigeria Mobilizing Market-Based Measures for Sustainable Aviation in Nigeria,” Nuhu said, the aviation industry world contributes less than five percent of the global carbon footprint.

He underscored the need for ICAO’s CORSIA program for a sustainable aviation policy that is anchored on the principle of “common but differentiated responsibility” so that regulators and operators of the global civil aviation industry innovate clean and green, low-carbon and energy-efficient technologies through/or outside the sector, market-based and region-specific measures to mitigate the carbon footprint of operators in the industry for sustainable aviation.

He noted that the United Nations climate change report had long established the precarious position of African nations in the climate change conversation, adding that research indicated that the African continent, which is responsible for less than 3% of global emissions, would support more than 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions, leaving the continent exposed to a myriad of socio-economic, environmental, security and humanitarian challenges related to desertification, the drying up of Lake Chad and to the losses of blue biodiversity within the Pan-African wetlands and ocean shores.

His words: “Now is the time for Africa to put a green foot forward, and this can be achieved through sustainable and climate-smart aviation solutions that respond to the aspirations, ambitions and emerging opportunities for operators, regulators, travel consumers and the planet.

“Nigeria faces a host of challenges related to climate change, primarily biodiversity degradation and pollution. Nigeria holds the record for the African country with the highest rate of deforestation, hence the urgency to mobilize a common but differentiated sustainable aviation solution for Nigeria, designed specifically to ensure the conservation and restoration of biodiversity. in our communities.

The NCAA chief revealed that the UN climate change report has long established the precarious position of African nations in the climate change conversation. He further said that now is the time for Africa to put a “green foot forward”, and this can be achieved through sustainable and climate-smart aviation solutions that meet the aspirations, ambitions and emerging opportunities for operators, regulators, travel consumers and the planet.

The Green-Sky-Green program is a voluntary carbon reduction program that allows eco-friendly travelers to grow 10 trees for every domestic ticket and 100 trees for every international ticket purchased in Nigeria.

The Green-Sky-Green Program pilots the Fly-2-Green Nigeria Eco-Token which is structured as a sustainable aviation policy corporate product for airline operators under NCAA regulations to ensure a neutral carbon footprint thanks to non-sector green emissions. market mechanism.

Green-Sky-Green is designed to launch the first Green Aviation Marketplace program in Africa and promote progressive opportunities that benefit people and the planet through effective climate-smart ESG programs that ensure green and blue economic growth for the United Nations Global Green Goals Agenda.
