ECAC has established environment as one of its key priorities, conscious that the environmental impacts of the aviation sector must be mitigated if aviation is to continue to be successful as an important facilitator of sustainable development.

Issues related to aviation and the environment are ever-present on the agenda of ECAC Directors General meetings, and also on those of ECAC's high-level meetings with regional partners and organisations, and in ECAC's memoranda of understanding or cooperation with them.

ECAC's commitment to capacity building is long-standing and an additional boost was made effective with the incorporation of a dedicated specialist to the ECAC Secretariat in December 2020, and the adoption on 5 May 2021 of a Capacity-Building Programme for Environment, seeking to strengthen the competencies and knowledge of officials at all levels dealing with environment matters in ECAC Member States.
