Aviation and aerospace connect people, cultures, and businesses like no other form of transport. Aviation directly contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and plays an immense role to improve and transform people’s lives across the globe.
However, global aviation produces around 2 per cent of all human-induced carbon dioxide emissions and 12 per cent of CO2 emissions from all transport sourcesII. If aviation were a country, it would be the sixth-largest emitter, falling between Russia and Japan.
Climate change is now the most significant challenge of our generation. To protect the future of our planet, everyone in the aviation and aerospace sector – including regulators and national aviation authorities – must play their part to reduce carbon emissions effectively. Regulators have an essential role in ensuring that the sector is fully prepared and more climate resilient. They must also ensure safety, security and environmental standards are met, and consumers’ rights are protected.
