These aims support our four goals for the CAA's environment programme.
Following a public consultation in early 2012 CAA has launched a four-year programme to help improve aviation's environmental performance and allow the sector to grow sustainably.

The CAA has set up an Environment Panel to assist the CAA in meeting its strategic environmental objective. The Environment Panel will provide external review, advice and challenge to the CAA in meeting the objectives of its environmental programme. The Panel will meet twice a year and consist of seven experts representing a range of stakeholder organisations.
