The Aviation Industry accounts for around 2% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. While this may seem like a small number, when you consider the massive scale of the aviation industry, it’s clear that we need to do something about those emissions if we want to keep global temperature rises under 2 degrees Celsius.
This article looks at the two main options to reduce global aviation emissions and meet the net zero targets set by the industry by 2050.

It might be hard to conceive of a time when safety was not an important industry trend, but we do not have to look that far back. As modern systems become more complicated, the importance of safety engineering will only increase.
