Sustainability is one of the most vital driving forces behind the future development in the air transport sector and improving the quality of our lives. The European aviation community is always on the lead of sustainable environmental and climatic actions.
The European Green Deal is an initiative of the European Commission under Ursula von der Leyen that aims to reduce carbon emissions in Europe by 55 percent in 2030 and achieve zero emissions of greenhouse gasses by 2050.
The European aviation sector has launched incredible research programs and initiatives, including using clean energy sources and developing hydrogen aircraft to achieve the commitment of a 90 percent reduction in transport and air transport-related greenhouse gasses by 2050.
The use of hydrogen will play a crucial role in Europe’s transition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and decarbonizing the energy system. Airport infrastructure developers, aircraft manufacturers, and stakeholders in the aviation industry invest substantial effort and time to develop hydrogen as a clean energy source. The plan is to ensure that the aeronautical sector utilizes a clean energy source and creates a sustainable ecosystem.
Many countries worldwide are coming up with new strategies that will ensure that any means of transportation has a low impact on the environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Sustainability air transport aims to enhance the growth of local neighborhoods alongside the development of airports which should be recognized as socially sustainable assets.
