Robert Sinclair became Chief Executive Officer of London City Airport on 1 November 2017. 

Earlier this month, we published our first annual update report of the progress we have made on our 2030 Sustainability Roadmap. I was proud of the good start and progress we have made this past year, especially in maintaining the reduction of carbon emissions we are directly responsible for, despite a significant increase in our passenger numbers. We have also achieved significant milestones across all three of our pillars: decarbonising our airport, improving our environment and helping East London grow and prosper. 

However, the journey to net zero emissions will take time. Indeed, we face the same complex challenges as other industries, like developing our future energy strategy to power our buildings and working out what infrastructure we need to support our airlines with the right fuels they will need over the next decades. 

We will continue to explore and collaborate with partners to encourage innovation and understand how we can be a part of the journey towards achieving zero emissions flight in the UK in the next decade – connecting the world more sustainably.
