Aviation and the Net Zero Emissions Challenge. Climate change is the aviation industry’s biggest environmental challenge. The industry can already boast the first global, sector-wide, market-based climate measurement in CORSIA and is also committed to a net 50% reduction in emissions by 2050.
However, there is growing evidence of climate warming and the latest IPCC report urges the world to aim for a tighter limit on warming and that to do so requires a reduction to “Net-Zero Emissions” by the middle of this century.
Should aviation now raise its own ambition? If so, how? What contribution can technology and operational efficiency make and how much will this hard-to-abate sector depend on replacement, zero-carbon, fuels and market-based mechanisms?
This year’s annual Greener by Design conference will debate this crucial strategic issue with senior speakers from within and outside the industry. The conference will be at the Royal Aeronautical Society, No.4 Hamilton Place, 4 Hamilton Place, London, W1J 7BQ, United Kingdom.
