The commercial aviation industry has committed to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 — now is the time for action.
Achieving net zero by 2050 will take a large ecosystem working in tandem — it will take everyone doing their part, whether that means investing, creating policies to enable new technologies or innovating. It will take new, advanced technologies and renewable energy — including sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), as well as hydrogen and electric. It will take operational efficiencies to the way we fly today and the investment in new, more efficient aircraft.
Achieving the commercial aviation industry’s goal to be net-zero by 2050 will take a collection of decarbonization strategies, including:
Energy or fuel that is derived from non-fossil pathways. Forms of renewable, on-board energy storage include sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), hydrogen and batteries.
Across all our new commercial models we are striving for double-digit improvements in CO2 emissions, fuel efficiencies and our noise footprint.
Sustainable innovations in next generation airframe, systems and energy and propulsion technology. Possible candidates include advanced conventional, hydrogen and battery-electric platforms.
More efficient flights, routes, and networks as a result of optimized weights, advanced air-traffic management (ATM) systems and improved load factors.
Market-based measures, or carbon offsets, reduce or remove greenhouse gases from sectors outside of aviation to offset emissions produced by aviation.
