Sustainable Skies World Summit to drive Net Zero

The Sustainable Skies World Summit returns to showcase and support the industry’s efforts towards meeting its net zero commitment, now given further impetus by the adoption by world governments of an aspirational net zero goal for aviation at the ICAO Assembly in October.

Taking place 17-18 April 2023, the global summit organised by Farnborough International, in partnership with the Sustainable Aviation Coalition, will showcase the latest developments in sustainable aviation technology and provide a forum to discuss how the industry can move in earnest from goal-setting to implementation of its net-zero strategies. The event will also highlight opportunities for the next generation of engineers and young people who will make jet zero a reality, and address the future workforce challenge.

This will be no ordinary conference as alongside the aviation and aerospace industry the event will welcome the wider aviation ecosystem including technology innovators, academia, investors and regulators to Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre for two days of demonstrations, high-level keynotes and organised meetings with industry and government, designed to stimulate collaboration, promote the role of the future workforce and demonstrate the technology that is beginning to deliver meaningful progress this decade.

The event will build on the work of the UK Jet Zero Council and its strategic framework launched at Farnborough International Airshow in July 2022, which set out a vision for the delivery of net zero UK aviation emissions by 2050.

Commenting on the second instalment of the Sustainable Skies World Summit, Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “Over the last 12 months, we have worked incredibly hard to become a progressive catalyst for industry innovation and insight. Following the Aerospace Global Forum that took place at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow and the subsequent ICAO work, where global governments committed to net zero aviation, the Sustainable Skies World Summit will move discussions to a demonstration of how the industry is making jet zero a reality today. We look forward to working with the Sustainable Aviation Coalition again and welcoming the leaders in the industry and the wider eco-system to Farnborough International to generate positive change.”

Matt Gorman, Chair of Sustainable Aviation, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting the Sustainable Skies World Summit once again, focusing on the ways in which the aviation industry is taking meaningful and exciting steps forward to address the sustainability challenge today, the challenges to be overcome and the exciting opportunities for tomorrow’s engineers, pilots and innovators to lead this transformation as the Jet Zero Generation”.
