The Annual General Meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) was held in Vancouver, Canada this week. A feature of the meeting was the 4 June 2007 State of the Air Transport Industry speech by IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani.

A key theme of the AGM was responding to concerns about the impact of aviation on climate change. Bisignani made a statement that included setting a very challenging goal - "Air transport must aim to become an industry that does not pollute—zero emissions."
