For decades, the aviation sector has been working systematically to reduce its impact on the planet. The long-running development of sustainable fuels and CORSIA (the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation), adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a United Nations specialized agency, are among the main pillars for greener skies. To reduce jet-fuel burn and the consequent carbon emissions, airlines have employed multiple strategies to control and remove onboard weight and waste. In the ‘GREEN’ ADVANCES Chapter of Jetliner Cabins: Evolution & Innovation, Author Jennifer Coutts Clay, CMILT, examines a range of technical triumphs and exceptional achievements across the product spectrum: air travellers can rest assured that their carbon footprints are in very good hands.
