The ICAO Council has reportedly signed off on a draft of the climate change mitigation plan the organization intends to submit to the upcoming 2016 Assembly. Full details of the plan have not been made public, and are reportedly still being finalized. According to Bloomberg News, participation in the plan, which enters into effect in 2020, will be voluntary for the first six years. It is hoped that the plan will garner sufficient support to cover approximately 80 percent of emissions from international flights worldwide.
