The Nigeria Aviation Industry has taken the bull by its horns to contribute its quota to the reduction of Carbon Emission, Co2 with the introduction of the GREEN-SKY-GREEN NIGERIA PROGRAM.

In a special presentation at the just concluded African-Indian Ocean, AFI Conference in Abuja, Nigeria’s Director General, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Capt. Musa Nuhu did not mince words when he expressed Nigeria’s commitment in addressing Co2 and seeing it through.

According to him, the  Green-Sky-Green is the first Eco-Citizen Flyer Miles program that deploys incentive-based voluntary Eco- Label tokens to mitigate Aviation Industry Carbon Emission Footprint beyond the ICAO’s CORSIA scheme in Nigeria through Forest Impact programs that guarantee Bio-Diversity and Eco-System conservation to combat desertification and protect wetlands for SDG Goals 14 and 15.

This step taken by Nigeria is in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization, ICAO, Action Plan Initiative launched in 2010 as a means to provide States with the capacity and tools to take action. 

Speaking on the Theme: ‘Green Flight to Eco-System Conservation in Nigeria Mobilizing Market-Based Measures for Sustainable Aviation in Nigeria’, Capt. Nuhu said, the time for Africa to put a “Green Foot forward” is now, citing the the precarious position of African Nations in the climate change conversation.

According to him, the United Nations research report indicated that the African continent which is responsible for less than 3% of global emissions will bear the brunt of over 60% of global Green-House Emissions effects, leaving the continent exposed to myriad of socio-economic, environmental, security and humanitarian challenges from desertification, the drying up of Lake Chad and Blue Bio-diversity losses within Pan-African wetlands and ocean shorelines.

In Nigeria, he said it is even worse as it is home to a host of climate change challenges, most of all bio-diversity degradation and pollution. Nigeria holds the record for the African country with the highest deforestation rate hence, the urgency to mobilize a common differentiated Sustainable Aviation Solution for Nigeria that is designed specifically to ensure Biodiversity Conservation and Restoration across the communities.

Capt. Nuhu explained that,the Sustainable Aviation policy leverages on the ICAO’s CORSIA scheme while re-purposing the Paris Climate Agreement to deploy nature-based solutions to meet the Nigerian Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) through the first Aviation Eco-Label Regime that promotes out-of-sector market-based Long Term Aviation Goals (LTAG) commitment to the global Bio-Diversity Protection programs under the United Nation International Decade of Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

“Today, the global Aviation Industry contributes less than 5% of global carbon emissions
footprint, buttressing the need for ICAO’s CORSIA program for Sustainable Aviation Policy that is anchored on the “common but differentiated responsibility” principle for global Civil Aviation Industry regulators and operators to innovate clean and Green, low carbon, energy-efficient technology through in-sector and/or out of sector, region-specific market-based measures to mitigate the carbon emissions
footprint”.

He disclosed that, the Green-Sky-Green is engineered to launch the first Green Aviation Marketplace program in Africa and promote progressive possibilities that profit the people and the planet through climate smart ESG efficient programs that guarantee Green and Blue Economic Growth for the United Nations Global Green Goals Agenda.

In the Green-Sky-Green Initiatives are the:
Eco-Citizens Consumers

Green-Sky-Green empowers Eco-Mobile citizen travelers to promote voluntary Travel Emission Reductions through Eco- Lifestyle Flyers Miles program that accelerate Eco-Responsibility to a greener planet where Eco-Passengers to activate future forest conservation and restoration Program for sustainable development.


Policy Program
The Green-Sky-Green is situated as a Sustainable Aviation Green Citizen Flyer Miles program that innovates a Climate Change Finance Mechanism for Green Airport Infrastructure, community-based Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation programs (Great Green Wall, Lake Chad) to create Green Jobs for Net Zero Emission footprint of the country.


Fly-2-Green

Fly-2-Green Nigeria is designed as an Eco-Citizen stimulus program that goes beyond open lifestyle incentives to create shared value, shared visions and shared possibilities that rally Eco- Consumer driven Sustainable Aviation Value Chain Marketplace to drive Net Zero Emissions Footprint for Aviation Industry.

Nigeria is an Omni-channel Sustainable Aviation product that promotes Voluntary Carbon Emission Reduction through Eco-Label tokens that incentivize Eco-Citizen Flyers to support Eco- Conservation programs through Green Sky Miles Carbon Offsets on domestic and international travel tickets in Nigeria.

Value Proposition
Fly-2-Green creates a Green Value Proposition that readily rewards every Eco-Citizen Flyer with smart Eco-Lifestyle incentives through Green Marketplace products that profit the people and the planet Green citizen, Green profit Good business one carbon-neutral ticket at a time.


Fly-2-Green Big Goal
The revenue model for the Fly-2-Green Nigeria product is structured to deploy embedded Eco-Incentives for air travel passengers to reduce their Aviation Carbon Footprints through Bio-Diversity projects that profit the planet. The BIG Green Profit for the Fly-2-Green Nigeria program is fundamentally structured to funnel Innovative Climate Finance and harness homegrown Green Economy Solutions for Sustainable Aviation and Carbon Neutral Community Development in Nigeria.

Green-Feet-Initiative

Green-Sky-Green program develops, deploys and finance mainly Bio-diversity Conservation programs through the Green-Feet-Green Initiative, an Ecosystem Conservation Vehicle that drives Reforestation/Afforestation Programs for Blue and Green Economy development projects across -Green-Nigeria.

Policy Partners
Green-Sky-Green program is structured to run on strategic Green Policy Impact Partnership to achieve the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets in the Nigerian Aviation sector through Nature-Based Solutions/Forest Carbon Offset program. The Fly-2-Green Nigeria program is anchored on collaborative culture to sustain the Aviation Marketplace’s competitiveness by seeking and maintaining progressive partnerships to profit the people and the planet.

Green Flight to Eco-System Conservation
The Fly-2-Green Nigeria product promotes progressive partnerships and possibilities that profit the people and the planet through a smart Eco-Citizen Flyers Empowerment program that drives Future Forest Footprint projects through Green Sky Miles that guarantee 100M Fly-2-Green Carbon Neutral tickets totaling over 10Bn Eco-Citizens Flyer Miles to plant over 1Bn trees across Nigerian in 10 years in commemoration of the United Nations Decade of Ecosystem Restoration in Nigeria.
