International Air Carrier Association (IACA)


IACA monitors and informs its member airlines of all regulatory developments concerning environmental issues, consumer policy, taxation and social affairs. It seeks to optimise the use of airspace capacity and promotes the restructuring of route networks to increase efficiency.

British Air Transport Association (BATA)


BATA is the trade association for UK-registered airlines. Its members cover all sectors of the industry, carrying over 129 million passengers and 1.1 million tonnes of cargo a year and are responsible for some 96% of UK airline output. BATA members recognise the external impacts of air travel and take their environmental responsibilities very seriously.

BATA strongly supports a strategy for sustainable development based on technology and efficiency, linked to fair and effective environmental and economic measures, applied internationally. Aviation is currently a relatively small contributor (2% of man-made CO2 emissions). However, BATA members are playing their full part in addressing this global challenge. BATA also plays a leading role in Sustainable Aviation, the world-leading joint sustainability initiative for UK aviation.
