February 05, 2020 / Buying Business Travel

The UK aviation industry has united behind a commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 as part of a drive to combat the growing climate crisis. The Sustainable Aviation coalition said the goal is based on a review of the opportunities to cut the industry’s emissions and forms part of its new “Decarbonisation Road Map: A Path to Net Zero”, which was published on 4 February. The road map sets out where such reductions can come from, including through more efficient flight operations, new aircraft and engine technology, modernising the UK’s airspace, the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAVs) and high-quality, market-based policy measures.
