A new PwC report – Road to Jet-Zero – outlines what it claims are the range of support measures needed to ensure that air travel in the UK becomes even more sustainable in the future, ultimately becoming a CO2 free industry.
It notes that aviation currently accounts for 7% of the UK’s total carbon emissions.
An engine of the global economy, the UK is the third largest aerospace market in the world and second largest in Europe, contributing £35 billion to UK GDP.
The report outlines the vital role the sector plays in the UK’s transition from a fossil fuel based economy to one primarily powered by renewable sources, and in delivering on the ambitious goal of net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.
