Boeing has decided to join a global sustainability alliance that was established by the United States Government and the World Economic Forum as the representative of the aviation sector.
In 2021, the First Movers Coalition was created, and their goal was "to leverage the purchasing power of major companies to speed up the pace of decarbonizing industrial sectors such as shipping, chemicals, and trucking."
Boeing will represent the aviation sector, and part of Boeing's responsibility will be to support the expansion of creation and commercialization of sustainable aviation fuels as well as advance other low-carbon technologies.
The aviation sector has another massive goal and that is to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, as part of the FMC, Boeing will play a crucial role in the overall achievement of this goal.
Additionally, there is a goal to hold global temperatures to 1.5 °C above preindustrial levels or the '1.5 °C pathway'.
"We can only maintain the critical climate pathway of 1.5ºC if we jumpstart the market for disruptive zero-carbon technologies and make them as economically competitive as existing carbon-intensive solutions. I congratulate Boeing for its new championship role and look forward to working together on driving the need for and accelerating the use of these emerging technologies." - said Nancy Gillis, Head of the First Movers Coalition.
