As scrutiny over the global aviation industry’s impact on the environment intensifies, the search for sustainable alternatives has gathered pace. Samantha Webb, global offer development manager at Air BP, explains what the company and other stakeholders across the sector are doing to develop a new era of cleaner flying.
With the aviation sector setting its sights on net zero carbon emissions by 2050, one of the big challenges facing industry leaders is reducing CO emissions from air transport. According to the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), worldwide flights in 2018 produced 895 million tons of CO, so there’s plenty of work to be done to meet that goal. The good news is that industry stakeholders, including Air BP, are committed to reducing carbon emissions in aviation.
