Climate impact of air transport – Current air transport climate targets insufficient for trend reversal

In 2016, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) set out climate protection targets for global air transport for the first time as part of its CORSIA programme . After 2020, air traffic should only be expanded in a climate-neutral way. In addition, the aim is to halve carbon dioxide emissions from air transport by 2050, … Continue reading Climate impact of air transport – Current air transport climate targets insufficient for trend reversal

New study reveals global air transport contributes 3.5 percent to global warming

Global air transport accounts for 3.5 percent of anthropogenic climate warming. It is also apparent that only one third of aviation’s climate impact is due to carbon dioxide emissions and two thirds to non-carbon-dioxide effects, with contrails and the resulting cirrus clouds being the most significant factor. These are the findings of a comprehensive international … Continue reading New study reveals global air transport contributes 3.5 percent to global warming
