Aviation is accountable for around 3% of the total annual Greenhouse Gases emissions from human activities. New technologies help reducing emissions at source, but with the air traffic forecast for the next 30 years, along with the growing concern about global warming, effort from every actor is crucial to address this increasing problem.
The State Of Art
85g CO2 per passenger per kilometre, 40T fuel burnt & 140T CO2 emitted are respectively the average emissions of the European fleet, the consumption and emission of a simple flight London New-York, according to the ICAO emissions simulator. While manufacturers are taking actions promoting cleaner Aircraft and developing sustainable aviation fuel, the process will take time before these solutions are widely available. A solution that can be applied today, is needed. Some believe, that the only way that aviation globally can achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, would be to stop flying.
We are convinced that there is a future for aviation,
and that it brings with it a wealth of benefits.
