Sustainable Aviation Carbon Road-Map: A path to Net Zero
UK aviation has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, through an international approach, working with governments around the world and through the UN.
Our Road-Map shows how we can accommodate a 70% growth in passengers by 2050 whilst reducing net carbon emissions levels from just over 30 million tonnes of CO2 per year down to zero through smarter flight operations, new aircraft and engine technology, modernising our airspace, the use of sustainable aviation fuels and significant investment in carbon reductions through smart market-based policy measures.
