Momentum is building behind sustainable aerospace. Decarbonisation will require deep collaboration, and the engagement of a whole industry beyond commercial aircraft - including space and helicopters.

The Airbus Summit, was held on 21-22 September 2021, bringing together renowned aerospace experts, operators, thinkers, journalists, influencers, and policy makers worldwide. This industry-wide conversation explored the innovations and cross-sector partnerships that will change the way we travel forever. 

The overarching theme throughout the Summit was sustainability and decarbonisation; and more specifically how Airbus and the industry will come together to implement the necessary mix of solutions for a credible journey towards net zero.
