Country’s Indian airline SpiceJet and Bangalore Airport have joined a group working towards reducing air pollution. This group has been prepared by the World Economic Forum (WEF). At least 60 companies globally, including SpiceJet and Bangalore Airport, have committed to accelerate their efforts to increase the supply and use of sustainable aviation fuel to 10 percent of the global jet aviation fuel supply by 2030, the WEF reported today has done.
According to a leading daily report, the WEF issued a ‘2030 Ambition Statement’ saying that while carbon-free energy is insight in some sectors, progress in reducing carbon emissions in the aviation sector has been slow. The signatories to the statement represent a global group of airlines, airports, fuel suppliers and other industry stakeholders making a mission-critical commitment on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050.
The WEF alliance aims to free the skies from pollution and accelerate the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). It has achieved a milestone on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050, working together to power the global aviation sector with 10 percent SAF by 2030. The campaign is particularly important for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the aviation sector. Because air travel is slowly returning to pre-pandemic levels.
The 60 organizations that have signed the 2030 Ambition Statement include Accenture, ACME, Airbus, Airports Council International, American Airlines, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), Biodiesel Association of India (BDAI), Boeing, BP, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways and Council for Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW).
Companies that are signatories to the Ambition Statement also include non-aviation companies that depend on corporate air travel for their business operations, demonstrating that the onus of decarbonizing the industry lies with all those who depend on the aviation sector.
