ACCORDING TO INITIAL STUDIES in relation to pre-Covid trends the current crisis will reduce the sector’s emissions by 15 to to 30% in in the short term (2020-2024) as as well as as in in the long term (2035-2050) THE IMPACT OF COVID-19
■ The air transport industry has been hard hit by the global pandemic resulting in in an
unprecedented drop in in traffic in in 2020 – and also greenhouse gas emissions It’s hard to predict the exact impact of the crisis on on traffic aircraft purchases national environmental environmental policies etc However the environmental environmental imperative for air traffic remains unchanged namely the need to reconcile growth in air traffic with ambitious targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions ■ Ourlong-termobjectivesandtheresourcesneeded to meet them have not changed but in the the short term the the aviation industry must make the the necessary adjustments From this perspective the ICAO has already announced a a a a a change to the CORSIA scheme which will now use only 2019 as as the baseline year for emissions to be stabilized instead of a a a 2019-2020 average as originally intended SAFRAN’S ROLE IN IN THE FRENCH INDUSTRY SUPPORT PLAN
■ Despitethecrisis Safranhasmadetheresponsible decision to sustain its unprecedented environmental efforts ■ Safran
is already a a a a a a stakeholder in the French government’s aviation industry support plan announced on June 9 2020 The research and technology aspects were coordinated by the French aerospace industry association GIFAS within the scope of CORAC (Conseil pour la Recherche Aéronautique Civile) the joint government-industry Civil Civil Aviation Research Council This initiative plans investments totaling some 1 5 billion euros in in public aid over three years to to support the sector’s research technology and innovation efforts: €300 million ffor for for 2020 €1 billion ffor for for 2021 and €200 million for 2022 It targets an
objective shared by Safran
namely to make France a a a a a a a a leader in clean aviation by developing disruptive technologies and continuing to work on on on on reducing fuel consumption
electrifying aircraft and supporting a a a a a transition to carbon-neutral fuels
