The global aviation industry is committed to cutting the levels of CO2 produced by air travel. In 2008, industry leaders joined together to announce ambitious carbon reduction goals and, while we have seen positive progress so far (the annual 1.5% fuel efficiency improvement goal is being more than met), more work needs to be done. But, the industry can’t do it alone. The help and engagement from governments is essential if the longer term goals of carbon neutral growth from 2020 and the halving of emissions by 2050 are to be realised.
