Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation
NSF offers verification for the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction for International Aviation (CORSIA) program, administered by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
CORSIA is a strategy for achieving carbon-neutral growth in international flights starting in 2021. CORSIA establishes mandatory annual reporting of airplane emissions and allows airplane operators to use emissions units from the carbon market to offset the amount of CO2 emissions that cannot be reduced through the use of technological and operational improvements and/or sustainable aviation fuels.
Of the 192 countries committing to this plan, 88 have volunteered to participate in the CORSIA pilot program in 2021. Airplane operators in these countries have implemented a monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system for CO2 emissions from international flights. The annual emissions reports must be verified by an independent third party before being submitted to the country authorities.
NSF offers verification services to airplane operators around the world in both English and French. We perform strategic analysis and risk assessment using a two-stage approach with a preliminary verification during the actual reporting year and final verification activities in the first months after the end of the reporting year.

NSF and E-Reuse Services Collaborate to Make Electronics Reuse Conference Waste-Free for Second Year
Every year, tradeshows and conferences generate thousands of tons of waste in the form of flyers, hand-outs, packaging, coffee cups and more. A closer look reveals an estimated 60 million people attend tradeshows each year—with each attendee generating up to 20 pounds of waste.
