Climate Change

Our goal is to identify, create and develop opportunities to reduce UK aviation climate change emissions and enable sustainable growth. Since 2010 we have de-coupled aviation growth from growth in emissions. Between 2010 and 2016, passenger numbers in the UK grew by 27%, while total emissions only grew by around 0.2%. This is as a result of airlines purchasing new aircraft technology – our airline members have improved their fuel efficiency by almost 12% -, improved air traffic management and airports investing in reduced energy use on airfields.
