33 NGOs call for reduction impact of air transport

Dear Presidents of the European Commission, European Council, and European Parliament,

In the context of the current climate and health crises, we, the undersigned organisations, demand that action be taken in response to the newly released updated analysis of the non-CO2 climate impacts of aviation by the European Commission, as required by the 2017 ETS directive. Now that air traffic’s non-CO2 impacts are officially acknowledged, immediate political action must follow to mitigate aviation’s total climate impact as soon as possible. The most effective way to do so is to ensure air travel is reduced and does not return to pre-COVID levels.
