Airbus new management team has set the company ambitious targets for the future. These not only describe how to develop and produce new, more competitive airliners but also defines Airbus' contribution to a sustainable aviation industry, contributing its part in the fight against climate change.
The new Airbus CEO, Guillaume Faury said at the opening of the Paris Air show "We must find a way to decarbonized aviation. This is for our generation to do. It's expected of us by the flying public and by society".
Carbon emission and the burning of fossil fuels are connected to 100%. When fuel is combusted in the engines of our aircraft, each kg of burned fuel produce 3kg of CO2 gas.
"If we don't do something about the emission of CO2 from our airliners we will double the emission by 2050 as we double the number of aircraft," said Faury. "We must not double the carbon footprint by 2050, we must half it.
