The Sustainable Aviation coalition, whose members include the AOA, has published its updated Net Zero Carbon Road-Map.
The new document, published on 17 April, confirms that UK aviation can continue to grow while meeting its commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. It says that advances in sustainable aviation technology have made the UK a global leader, creating an opportunity to establish Britain as the home of a low carbon aviation industry that could create thousands of jobs and attract billions in inward investment.
However, Sustainable Aviation said that “this opportunity is at risk without Government support. Without urgent Government action the UK risks losing an industry estimated to support 60,000 jobs and be worth around £10bn in GVA benefits by 2050”. It called for an industry funded price support mechanism to help secure private investment in UK sustainable aviation fuel plants.
