Reaching net-zero carbon emissions from the aviation sector is technically and financially possible by 2060 and earlier in developed economies, according to the aviation Sectoral Focus published today by the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC). This Sectoral Focus presents in more detail the underlying analysis on aviation decarbonization that fed into the ETC’s integrated report Mission Possible: Reaching net-zero carbon emissions from harder-to-abate sectors by mid-century. The aviation Sectoral Focus outlines the possible routes to fully decarbonize aviation. It says that improvements in energy efficiency of engines and airframes, combined with greater efficiency of aviation operations, could reduce the growth of emissions by 30-45%
