With the potential to lower carbon emissions by up to 80% over the fuel’s lifecycle, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) offers the largest potential to reduce those emissions over the next 30 years.
New airplanes provide significant efficiency gains — each generation reduces fuel use and emissions 15% to 25%. Deploying the latest generation of airplanes is one of the most significant contributions to CO2 emissions reduction available over the next decade.
Across all our new commercial models we are striving for double digit improvements in CO2 emissions, fuel efficiencies and our noise footprint.
To meet the industry’s net zero commitment by 2050, it will take a “SAF” approach. Boeing has extensive experience on the “and” through research, studies, testing and partnerships. The future of flight will incorporate the latest digital design, testing and production tools, airframe, propulsion and systems technology; and different power and energy solutions will apply to different market segments and aircraft sizes.
Small, collaborative changes to improve efficiency can reduce emissions by about 10%.
From optimized flight planning, the use of real-time weather and traffic information, and leveraging the power of data analytics, we support our customers through nearly every phase of flight.
Boeing has multiple digital solutions available today and even more that are in development that can help customers improve their fuel and flight efficiency.
While the above strategies will reduce the growth rate of aviation’s carbon emissions, market-based measures – or carbon offsets – will be needed to bridge the gap while technology advances.
