Continuing the work of the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Greener by Design Group, the Society will host a two-day virtual conference aimed at leading decision-makers, industry innovators and future aerospace professionals. The programme will include presentations, speaker debates and panel discussions. Topics to be covered will include alternative and sustainable aviation fuels, electrification, CO2 and non-CO2 emissions, carbon offsetting, CORSIA, finance and investment, the passenger perspective, government policy, skills and recruitment, the contribution of airports, technology and university studies and the future generation.
This seminar will highlight the ongoing work by ICAO and the aviation community towards green recovery, showcasing the concrete measures in place to promote an open and inclusive environmentally sustainable future, and will provide a forum for discussion on how the green aviation future can be shaped. In light of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement objectives, the seminar will stress the need for climate action by aviation; showcase solutions for aviation’s deep decarbonisation by States and industry building upon the ICAO Stocktaking seminar that took place in September 2020; showcase how aviation support others reduce/avoid their CO2 emissions and cope with the environmental crisis; and discuss the policies and measures that need to be in place within and outside aviation to support the sector's decarbonisation path.
To be held by the organisers of the Dubai Airshow, Aviation Sustainability is the Middle East’s only fully virtual conference dedicated to growing the aviation industry with sustainability. As planes return to the sky and new post-pandemic challenges arise, sustainability remains a key strategic priority for the aviation sector. With airlines, airports, and governments committed to their long-term sustainability goals, this virtual conference will uncover the technologies available to increase operational efficiency, reduce emissions and expedite research to help support the industry in a green recovery.
