Team Lopez – Last week, the government set out its landmark Jet Zero strategy, setting out how the domestic aviation sector will achieve net zero emissions by 2040, unleashing the huge economic benefits of decarbonisation and creating the jobs of the future.
With aviation currently responsible for around 2.5% of global carbon dioxide, the government knows it must help our aviation sector to slash emissions and pave the way for green flights.
The Jet Zero strategy provides a clear path to building a greener aviation sector including: achieving net zero emissions by 2040; for all airports in England to be zero-emission in the same year; new targets to reduce aviation emissions; and a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) mandate to ensure at least 10% of jet fuel is SAF by 2030.
The government’s plans ensures passengers can fly guilt free as it helps our aviation sector to reap the huge economic benefits of decarbonisation and lead the way in tackling climate change.
