As international air travel is recovering from the limitations of Covid 19, the rise in greenhouse gas emissions from aviation is expected to rise dramatically, and that means an industry review.
The aviation sector nearly doubled since 2000 to reach one billion metric tons in 2018.
As a result of government policy to make Sweden climate-neutral by 2045, etc., the Swedish aviation industry has established an emissions-reduction roadmap for domestic flights until 2030 and for those from Slovakia until 2045.
At the recent COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, the industry simply reaffirmed its commitment to a plan known as the “Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation [FAGS].
The meetings looked at the most promising political and practical developments in the field of net-zero aviation and into the most important barriers.
Despite genuine efforts by some industry leaders and governments to reduce the aviation sector to net zero, serious strategic and practical challenges remain.
