Recommendations to mitigate impact of aviation on climate
Aviation is one of Europe’s strongest economic sectors, with the aeroplane being the most convenient and preferred means of transport. However, air travel also accounts for 5 % of global carbon emissions and flying is responsible for a number of negative external effects that are not neutral to the environment. Experts suggest that aviation’s share of the entire anthropogenic climate impact will increase exponentially in the coming years. As a result, intergovernmental and scientific institutions as well as the aviation industry are seeking new technologies and operational improvements to reduce these negative effects. The EU-funded ClimOP project will detect, evaluate, develop and propose to aviation stakeholders and policymakers a set of most promising and integrated mitigation strategies aiming to restrict the aviation sector's climate impact.
