A4E Aviation Summit 2020 (Panel 2)


Panel 2: Pushing the Limits on Sustainable Aviation Policymaking in Europe

Air transport, just like any other sector of the European economy will need to contribute to the European Green Deal.

What are the actions needed to achieve sustainable aviation? What role should industry, policy-makers and passengers play in supporting the planned objective of a climate-neutral economy by 2050? How can we ensure that air transport reduces its environmental footprint while maintaining connectivity and affordability for travellers?
