Aviation emissions 'expected to fall'



Aviation emissions 'expected to fall'
The aviation industry is expected to reduce carbon emissions levels this year, according to the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG).

Due in part to the economic climate, the organisation expects the transportation method to produce less carbon in 2009 than in 2005.

Paul Steele, executive director at the ATAG, claimed that the aviation industry is more energy efficient than several other sectors but has a bad reputation.

He said: "There are many other industries that produce a greater amount of CO2 than aviation, whose emissions are also growing.

"In the current environment, due to economic downturn, we are expecting aviation emissions to fall this year and possibly below 2005 levels."

Reducing fuel consumption and carbon neutral growth are being focused upon by the industry, according to the ATAG.

The Committee on Climate Change recently advised the UK government to cap aviation emissions in order to help meet climate change targets and reduce carbon emissions.
