Aviation has never been equitable. Just 1 per cent of people cause half of global aviation emissions. And while flying accounts for a relatively small percentage of global emissions â€“ 3.5 per cent when CO2 and non-CO2 impacts are taken into account â€“ it is really hard to decarbonise. In this session, we will test the idea that to go faster on aviation, we canâ€™t rely on unproven tech. We have to make it more equitable. And in this case, that means driving down demand among the worldâ€™s wealthy. They must believe it is fair that they fly less.Â
This session is part of the The Tortoise Climate Summit: Is a fair transition faster?
