The Illusion of Green Flying

From the Austrian website

“Aviation is the fastest way to the climate crisis. Yet air travel is growing rapidly, with hundreds of new airports currently planned – despite local resistance and an urgent need to abate the climate crisis.

The aviation industry has announced its intention to become greener in the future. The report by Finance & Trade Watch examines the different climate strategies. Do they deliver on their promises? Is carbon-neutral growth a realistic goal?

The report addresses people and groups that want to understand the greening strategies in order to effectively address aviation growth and climate change. Therefore, the report also describes different answers from civil society actors, and needed strategies to set a limit to aviation growth.”
