In a significant move to bolster aerospace safety, security, and sustainability, Boeing has announced its strengthened commitment to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

This United Nations agency, headquartered in Montreal, plays a pivotal role in coordinating the development and implementation of global standards for safe and efficient air travel.

As part of its efforts, Boeing has appointed Mildred Troegeler as its first liaison to ICAO, underlining its dedication to fostering a safer and more sustainable aerospace ecosystem.

Mildred Troegeler: A leading figure in aerospace safety

Mildred Troegeler, a seasoned lawyer with a background in aviation, will serve as Boeing’s executive liaison to ICAO. Her expertise and experience include a notable stint as the Global Airspace Integration director for Boeing’s Advanced Air Mobility division, where she played a key role in driving technical and regulatory affairs for Europe.

Prior to joining Boeing, Troegeler held the position of technical and operations general manager at the European Airline Association and also served as a legal advisor on United Nations space matters.

With her comprehensive understanding of the industry, Troegeler is well-positioned to facilitate effective collaboration between Boeing, ICAO, and other relevant stakeholders.

With the aviation industry continually evolving and embracing new technologies, fostering international cooperation is more crucial than ever.

Boeing recognizes the importance of working closely with ICAO to maintain and advance aerospace safety standards.

Boeing’s active participation in ICAO’s working groups and panels demonstrates its commitment to sharing technical expertise on critical topics such as safety, sustainability, and innovation.

Through these collaborations, the company aims to contribute to the development of cutting-edge solutions that align with global standards and regulations.

Strengthening industry ties

Apart from its liaison role with ICAO, Boeing actively collaborates with the International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Associations (ICCAIA) and other industry associations.

This multifaceted approach ensures that Boeing remains at the forefront of addressing challenges and opportunities in the aviation sector.

Addressing the decarbonization challenge

Chris Raymond, Boeing’s chief sustainability officer and a member of its Executive Council, acknowledges the urgency of decarbonizing aerospace. With the aviation industry striving to reduce its carbon footprint, it is essential to foster collective efforts and innovative solutions.

Boeing looks forward to supporting ICAO’s initiatives to set environmental standards for aviation and to contribute to global policies on sustainable aviation fuels and other key initiatives.
