Reducing carbon emissions has been a long-term goal for the aviation industry. With borders now open after a 2-year break due to the pandemic, there is a spotlight on the aviation industry and its commitment to becoming sustainable and protecting the climate of our planet. 

This webinar brings together experts from various fields within the aviation industry to provide insightful perspectives on not just Sustainable Aviation Fuel, but also on the importance of balancing that with effective carbon market-based measures (MBMs) to ensure carbon emission goals are being met in a quantifiable manner. Moreover, sustainability in the aviation industry has to be undertaken in a holistic manner with the engagement of the wider ecosystem and stakeholders such as the financial sector. Beyond these, the webinar seeks to discuss the possibility of breakthrough technology such as hydrogen-based or electric aircrafts. 

We are inviting you to join us for a best practice and awareness-sharing session on the journey to zero-emission and cleaner technologies that the aviation industry has embarked upon.
