Meet the pioneers of sustainable aviation.
Innovators transforming aviation.
Climate change concerns are making the aviation industry turn to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), electric, and hydrogen-powered aircraft to cut emissions. However, scaling these technologies requires significant innovation.
“Sustainability in the Air” highlights the journeys of entrepreneurs, executives, and investors who are navigating these challenges and paving the way for the future of aviation.

Why is it important
As the leader of one of the world’s largest airlines, I recognize our responsibility in contributing to climate change as well as our responsibility to solve it. It’s no longer enough for us to connect the world without making sure it has a future.
CEO, United Airlines
Connecting the world and protecting our environment for future generations cannot be mutually exclusive. Travelers should not have to choose between seeing the world and saving the world.
CEO, Delta Airlines
If we thought of sustainability in the same way that we think about safety, I’m quite sure we’d be incentivised to create solutions to actually solve those problems.
CEO, Air New Zealand
If we wait for the ideal technology to be available, then the world is cooked. We miss the net-zero targets. We miss the temperature rise targets.
Solving the climate challenge requires collaboration across industries. Decarbonizing aviation is much harder than decarbonizing road transport, as the laws of physics are against us. No one solves these challenges alone.
Increasingly, travelers will make choices that do include carbon emissions and therefore, the environmental performance [of their airline]. The people that don’t respond in the sort of ways that we’ve been doing may well be history.
CEO, Etihad Airways
