- A statement from the CEO of Embraer
- What technologies Embraer is producing to hit Net Zero Emissions
The global air transport industry has adopted a long-term climate goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, confirming the commitment of the world’s airlines, airports, air traffic management and the makers of aircraft and engines to reduce CO2 emissions in support of the Paris Agreement 1.5ºC goal. he agreement was reached during the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Annual General Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Embraer’s commitment to support net-zero by 2050 was announced earlier this year.
“Embraer welcomes this important commitment. We face a global challenge and this commitment from industry globally, is essential in achieving the focus required to succeed in the task ahead.”, said Francisco Gomes Neto, President and CEO of Embraer. “Meeting this challenge, while retaining the enormous societal and economic benefits air connectivity brings, is the focus of our team.”
Embraer believes that net-zero carbon emission by 2050 can be achieved by developing products, services, and disruptive sustainable technologies such as electrification, hybrid, biofuels – including Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) – and other innovative energy alternatives. The Air Transport Action Group´s (ATAG) Waypoint 2050 report shows that despite the goal being challenging, there are credible paths for global civil aviation to reach net-zero carbon by 2050.
