Net zero aviation and shipping

Inquiry

Aviation and shipping pose major challenges to reducing emissions. Together they account for 10% of UK greenhouse gas emissions and on current trends, aviation will be the largest emitting sector by 2050. The Government has set ambitious targets to reach net zero emissions by 2050 for the UK’s share of international aviation and shipping.

This inquiry will look at the ability of technologies, fuels and operational efficiencies to reduce both sector’s emissions and what Government action is needed at a national and international level to meet its stated targets.
