The aviation industry is our sector’s Achilles’ heel.

Consumers are increasingly demanding that producers and suppliers address the sustainability of the goods and services offered to us to purchase  – the same pressure needs to come on the manufacturers of aeroplanes and providers of flights. The aviation industry is our sector’s Achilles’ heel.

In the motor industry, there has been rapid progress in developing more carbon efficient engines and in reducing emissions. Similar pressure needs to be placed on airlines and aeroplane manufacturers. The planes being brought into service now are expected to be flying in 30 years’ time, for sure the regulatory framework will be very different by then.

Change is coming we need to make aviation better or accept that its failure to address its carbon emissions will damage our industry, damage it badly.
