World’s aviation leaders to debate the sustainability challenges for the industry

Leaders of the world’s foremost aviation bodies, manufacturers and operators will meet at the ATAG Global Sustainable Aviation Summit in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss the long-term challenges the industry faces. Governments and United Nations (UN) bodies will also attend the summit, which is hosted by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) and co-organized by ACI, IATA, CANSO and ICCAIA.

The event, which is due to take place on October 3-4, will see delegates debate how the industry can work with governments to ensure that the economic and social benefits of air transport can be shared by all. There will also be discussion on how interaction between the aviation, travel, trade and tourism sectors has been supporting the global push toward sustainability.

The UN declared 2017 as the ‘year of sustainable tourism for development’. Now that many of the technical hurdles facing aviation in its move toward sustainable alternative fuels have been overcome, commercialization and scaling up of supply is the next step.

With the industry’s medium-term goal of carbon-neutral growth well on course through the adoption of the carbon offsetting and reduction scheme for international aviation (CORSIA), focus is shifting toward the industry’s long-term emissions reduction of halving net CO₂ emissions by 2050, relative to 2005 levels.
