Aviation’s impact on the environment
Aviation stimulates the economy, trade and tourism, generates business opportunities and enhances quality of life in both developed and developing regions. However, aviation does produce approximately two percent of human-caused CO2 emissions.
We support a global approach to addressing greenhouse gas emissions. Together with other airlines, engine and airframe manufacturers, fuel suppliers, airports and governments, we’re working towards a collective industry goal of 1.5 percent average annual fuel efficiency improvement through 2020, carbon neutral growth beginning in 2020 and a 50 percent reduction in airline CO2 emissions by 2050.
