Last week, I was at the Wings India event in Hyderabad alongside other sustainability leaders from across aviation. My message was that this must be a decade of action on climate change for our industry and ATM has a leading role to play.
Virgin Atlantic’s Flight100 is a landmark moment, offering a glimpse into commercial long-haul flight powered by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This week’s historic flight across the Atlantic showcased the results of a radical collaborative effort, and NATS is proud to have supported this achievement.
NATS was recently named in the 2023 Financial Times-Statista Climate Leaders list, for the third consecutive year. The prestigious list names just 500 European companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in emissions intensity since 2016. So, what have we been up to, and what are our future commitments as we move towards a decarbonised aviation industry? Our newly published ‘Transition Plan’ compiles the journey so far and gives a preview of our ambitions for the next five years.
This week we announced we’re giving away our environmental performance metric 3Di – or ‘Three Dimensional Insight’ – to stakeholders across the aviation community that would like to use it. But how does it work?
The Covid19 crisis represents a once in a generation opportunity to ‘build back better’, so how successful was DHL’s ‘perfect flight’ what lessons can we learn?
As we end week 12 of lockdown in the UK and head into the normal summer holiday season, there is still uncertainty around what a recovery might look like for the aviation industry. One thing is clear; the severe fall in air traffic present a unique opportunity to accelerate aviation decarbonisation.
A decade ago we launched Acting Responsibly – a unique programme among air navigation service providers globally – and we’ve achieved a huge amount. The sheer enthusiasm and passion of NATS employees has seen the programme grow into a rich range of activities. I’d like to share a few of highlights from the past […]
Aviation produces greenhouse gases, that’s a fact we can’t ignore and yet at the same time the world has become addicted to flying. Later today I will be speaking at the UN Climate Change Summit in Paris to demonstrate some of what we’re doing to deliver CO2 emission reductions.
