The aviation industry’s commitment to tackling climate change will be brought into focus at the Sustainable Skies World Summit at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre from April 5-6 2022.
The two-day conference will provide a platform for industry experts, leading academics and governments from around the world to share insight, discussions and debate the barriers facing industry on the path to net zero.
The Summit programme will set out to find the fundamental answers at the heart of aviation’s sustainability question, driving honest conversations and debates from all corners of industry. Conference sessions will challenge the aviation sector to establish a new global aerospace sustainability agenda which can accelerate the pace of change within industry.

The two day-event will explore where the industry is on the roadmap to a more sustainable future, from company perspectives from manufacturers such as Pratt & Whitney, along with sessions exploring how sustainability measures are evolving and being applied within the UK, EU, US and globally.
The use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in reducing aviation emissions will be on the agenda on Day One of the Summit. The SAF Plenary will feature representatives from the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Clean Skies Coalition. Discussions on next generation alternatives, including hybrid and hydrogen will be also be highlighted at a panel session moderated by Robin Riedel from McKinsey entitled “What will future engines and aircraft technology solutions be and by when?”
