A research had a fast repair for slashing aircraft emissions

Grounding non-public jets might considerably lower the carbon footprint of aviation, in keeping with a research commissioned by the UK authorities, which is being urged to get a grip on rising demand for personal flights.

The research by the consultancy Frazer Nash discovered that 75 per cent of the sector’s emissions come from enterprise aviation, specifically non-public jets. In accordance with Greenpeace, about 90,000 non-public jets departed from the UK final yr, belching out round 600,000 tonnes of CO2.

“Lowering these flights by half would cut back the sector’s emissions by roughly 37 per cent, nearly all of the decarbonisation required below the balanced internet zero pathway,” the study mentioned. “The Division for Transport ought to think about measures to cut back demand of unsustainable carbon intensive flights.”
