Aviation has given us the possibility to explore all four corners of our planet. To connect with friends and to meet new ones—anywhere. To feel the thrill of seeing our world from 30,000 feet above.
Today, we know our love of air travel also comes at a cost: the aviation industry represents approximately 2.5% of global human-induced CO2 emissions. But aviation is not the problem. Emissions are the problem.
At Airbus, we are committed to leading the decarbonisation of the aerospace sector. This includes reducing the CO2 emissions of our aircraft, helicopters, satellites and launch vehicles, as well as our industrial environmental footprint at sites worldwide and throughout our supply chain. To this end, we are contributing to meet key industry-wide environmental performance targets. We are also focused on delivering on our ambition to bring the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft to market by 2035. Our approach is not only ambitious, but rather, a seismic shift for our industry.
As we work to achieve our ambition, we are also continuously enhancing our company-wide product and services portfolio to contribute positively to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
