As the aviation industry commits to Net-Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050, there's a clear consensus that success is only achievable through the collective efforts of every participant within the aviation ecosystem - from engine manufacturers, fuel majors and airlines - to policy makers like governments and industry bodies. Join us as we discuss the path to achieving the airline industry’s commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, key issues before the ICAO 41st Assembly and the challenge of single use plastics for aviation.
