This document sets out Sustainable Aviation’s projection of future CO2 emissions from UK aviation and explains how governments and the aviation industry can achieve the industry target of halving net CO2 emissions by 2050, compared with 2005 levels.
Sustainable fuels have the potential to play an important role in achieving the UK’s ambition to reduce carbon emissions from transport. Sustainable Aviation (SA), a coalition of the UK’s airlines, airports, manufacturers and air navigation service provider NATS, has launched its latest Road-Map, which considers the opportunities for sustainable aviation fuels. The Road-Map identifies the potential for a 24 per cent reduction in aviation carbon dioxide emissions, the generation of £265 million in economic value and the creation of 4400 jobs in the UK over the next 15 years. However, Government support will be vital to achieve this potential. To read our press release click here.
