20 Airlines Commit To New Technologies To Minimise Climate Impact

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has announced that 20 airline members of its Target True Zero initiative have committed to using new technologies to combat climate change.

The airlines have pledged their support for novel forms of propulsion powered by sustainable energy sources, such as electric and hydrogen-powered planes, as well as hybrid aircraft.

The statement said: “The adoption of these technologies into the global fleet – through either new aircraft design or the retrofitting of conventional aircraft – can help reduce the climate impact of our operations while preserving the immense economic and social benefits that aviation brings to the world.”
