 The path to decarbonization advocated by Safran
Given the forecast growth in global air traffic, the aviation industry has set an extremely ambitious target of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Meeting this goal will require a step change in the pace of decarbonization. In other words, we will have to duplicate the environmental progress of the civil aviation industry over the period 1950-2020 – but twice as fast!
Safran is a full-fledged participant in this global effort and shares the firm conviction that we can rise to the challenge. However, it will be a difficult transition, demanding a strategy supported by the entire sector, together with consistent public policies across the globe, and the activation of multiple levers to achieve the desired results.
AN ARRAY OF INDUSTRY ACTIONS
■ Safran believes that the objective of net-zero carbon emissions can be met by 2050 through a multipronged approach: technological innovation and aircraft replacement (from 35% to 40% of the effort required); the introduction of sustainable aviation fuels (about 50%); and the balance by optimizing traffic and infrastructures and by using offsets for residual emissions.
