Sector climate change responses


Many aerospace and defence companies are already taking pro-active steps to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption. For the aerospace industry, improving the fuel efficiency and emissions profile of aircraft is a major area of focus.

Signifi cant progress has already been made. Today’s jets are 70% more fuel efficient than those produced 40 years ago, however further improvements are planned.
