Sustainable Skies12 May 2023
We recently attended the Sustainable Skies World Summit in Farnborough with representatives from across the aviation industry as Sustainable Aviation (SA) announced its updated roadmap to Net Zero. The Summit unites industry leaders from across the world to discuss the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead on the path to Net Zero. With panel speakers […]
West Airspace Deployment: The “O” Date16 March 2023
With the operational “O” date for West Airspace Deployment (West) only one week away (the day the airspace changes go live), you might be wondering what actually happens on the day.
Life beyond Covid for Asia Pacific’s Aviation industry: Think Global, Collaborate Regional, Accomplish Local9 November 2022
Asia Pacific has gone from being one of the fastest growing to among the slowest to emerge from the impact of Covid lockdowns and travel restrictions. That said, although there has been a relatively fragmented recovery over the past months, certain countries have been quicker to return than others.
It is now a scientific certainty that the impact of contrails and contrail-induced cirrus clouds, despite their relatively short lifetime, have at least an equivalent impact on the climate as CO2 emissions, and potentially up to twice that. What can we do about it?
The FlyZero Flightpath18 June 2021
As the Prime Minister arrived in Cornwall for last week’s G7 meeting, he declared “the UK is actually in the lead in developing sustainable aviation fuel, and one of the points in the 10 point plan of our green industrial revolution, is to get to ‘jet zero’ as well.”
So what is the UK doing to deliver ‘jet zero’ and reduce emissions from aviation? And how is NATS playing a part?
NATS can trace its sustainability programme back to 2008. We’re proud that we were among the first in our industry to recognise the climate challenge and start to put in place measures to address the impact we have.
Here’s a real world example of how we’re using 3Di – now available for free to the rest of the aviation industry – to make real world improvements to our customers’ operations, while making a contribution to making aviation more environmentally sustainable.
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?
How to find the silver lining in some of our clouds24 November 2020
White cloud streaks high up in the sky are one of the ways you can tell a plane has been overhead. And although they can form striking patterns in the sky, these contrails and the cirrus clouds they induce, impact climate change, possibly greater than the effect from CO2 emissions.
Our Road-Map to Net Zero4 February 2020
It’s now 15 years since Sustainable Aviation was set up, a unique coalition across the aviation industry established to work collectively and collaboratively to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.
