At its 87th Meeting, the CDM Executive Board approved a new methodology in which aircraft ground operations are managed with the help of additionally installed electric motors (electric taxiing). This is the first CDM methodology to be developed for the aviation sector.
Furthermore, the Board agreed on improving the local stakeholder consultation procedures. The changes bring more clarity to the way stakeholders are invited to submit comments. In addition, a formal process is to be introduced to allow third parties to submit comments during a project life-cycle.
