This briefing is part of EUROCONTROL’s initiative to provide key information guiding decisions that will improve aviation’s environmental footprint, both at policy and industrial level. Its outreach is not just for those of you working in aviation. It includes everyone who is concerned about aviation’s impact on the environment and wants to know more about the possibilities and trends of the future.
At EUROCONTROL we are working on a number of sustainability services to reach the shared vision of a carbon-neutral industry by 2050. We operate the Emissions Trading Scheme and CORSIA Support Facilities to help competent authorities and aircraft operators to meet their obligations. We develop innovative environmental impact assessment tools like IMPACT and OPEN-ALAQS. We participate in innovation projects within the scope of SESAR, and also with operational stakeholders. We contribute to a better understanding of environmental performance by providing data, action plans and recommendations, and by developing (e)-trainings and webinars.
Aviation is transitioning to carbon neutrality; many solutions are developed and being implemented by our partners in the industry. I am excited that our first edition features two of these partners with trailblazing solutions for the reduction of aviation’s carbon footprint: Airbus’ fello’fly project and NESTE’s sustainable aviation fuels.
