Boeing is united with our customers and governments around the globe in committing to bold climate change ambitions, and support civil aviation’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and Australia’s Jet Zero Council mandate to reduce aviation emissions which contributes 2.5 per cent of the world’s total carbon emissions.
The future of flight will require us to simultaneously pursue multiple pathways to achieve net zero carbon emissions. Boeing’s four strategic pathways to reduce emissions are fleet renewal, operational efficiency, renewable energy and advanced technologies.
Recognising the critical role sustainable aviation fuel plays as near-term technology to reduce emissions in aviation, as a hard to abate industry, Boeing has committed that our commercial airplanes will be capable and certified to fly on 100% sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) by 2030.
Boeing and CSIRO are currently partnering on a SAF Roadmap to explore how Australia can establish itself as a leading SAF producer in the Asia Pacific region. Final Roadmap findings and recommendations from this analysis will available by mid-2023.
