Aerospace Giants Back Technology to Provide ‘relentless’ Aviation Decarbonisation

The chief technology officers of seven major aerospace manufacturers have released a joint statement outlining how the firms are committed to sharing best practice to decarbonise the sector. The senior representatives from Airbus, The Boeing Company, Dassault Aviation, GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce, Safran and United Technologies Corporation issued the joint statement to highlight how the industry is “working at an unprecedented level” to mitigate climate change impacts. The signatories of the letter note that aircraft and engine design, the commercialisation of sustainable and alternative fuels and the integration of “third era” technology such as electric and hybrid-electric propulsion, digitisation, artificial intelligence will redefine the industry and help overcome decarbonisation barriers. However, the companies have also called for more enabling legislative frameworks to be created to help unlock change. “There must be additional public and private commitment to establish a sound regulatory foundation to address the novel issues associated with emerging aviation technologies and to provide the necessary economic support for widespread SAFs commercialisation,” the statement reads.
