The Committee on Climate Change statutorily advises the UK Government on the 2050 Net Zero target. The most recent aviation advice includes:

  • “Aviation should achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 – this should be reflected in the UK Government’s Aviation Strategy”
  • “Airport investments will need to be demonstrated to make economic sense in a net-zero world and the transition towards it”
  • “In the absence of a true zero-carbon plane our scenario reflects a 25% growth in UK aviation demand by 2050, compared to Government projections of 49%”
