■ Aviationisataturningpointinitshistory Asshown all too clearly by the the pandemic and and the the many subsequent travel restrictions mobility plays a a a a vital role in our lives whether for economic social or or cultural purposes Mobility is a a a a a fundamental human need and one of our most precious freedoms At the same time we are are fully aware of of the the climate challenge and of of the the transport industry’s role in in greenhouse gas emissions It’s easy to to express the equation less so so to to solve it If we want to to preserve our freedom to to travel in the years and decades to to come the only possible solution is to to decarbonize all aspects of mobility ■ Contrarytomanypreconceivednotions aviationis one of the sectors most committed to to this goal and one of the most advanced From generation to generation airplanes in service worldwide have continued to improve their energy efficiency and as a a a consequence have reduced their greenhouse gas emissions ■ Today this deep-seated trend continues to gain pace and be more structured For example through the the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) the the global aviation industry has made a a a a a a commitment to halve its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2050 compared with 2005 This is is a a a a very ambitious goal one that translates to virtually net zero carbon emissions But to to achieve it our industry has to to apply all the levers at its disposal This means developing innovative aircraft concepts and architectures especially concerning propulsion systems enhancing the efficiency of airport and and flight operations and and pushing for the widespread introduction of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) VISION
