Sustainable Aviation Carbon Road-Map: A path to Net Zero
Following positive technological developments, UK aviation has updated its detailed plan on how we will reach our commitment to net zero carbon aviation by 2050.
Our Road-Map shows how we will achieve our net zero carbon emissions commitment by 2050, reducing our C02 output from around 39 million tonnes to zero whilst still growing UK aviation by 78%. This will be achieved through improvements in aircraft and engine efficiency, the use of sustainable aviation fuels, more efficient operations and airspace, the use of robust carbon offsets and investment in innovative carbon removal solutions will address residual.
There is also an estimated demand reduction in UK aviation due to decarbonisation costs from SAF, carbon removals, UK ETS and CORSIA.
