AVIATION097Above: Business aviationis working hard on waysto reduce greenhouse gasemissionsentitled 'An Agenda for a Sustainable Future inGeneral and Business Aviation', in which the EuropeanCommission recognised our important role in providing"tailored, flexible, door-to-door transportation forindividuals, enterprises and local communities,increasing the mobility of people, productivity ofbusiness and regional cohesion."FULLY COMMITTEDThe global business aviation operating andmanufacturing communities have put together anaggressive strategy. Presented in the second-half of 2009 jointly by the General Aviation ManufacturersAssociation (GAMA) and the International BusinessAviation Council (IBAC), of which the EuropeanBusiness Aviation Association (EBAA) is a member, the programme is consistent with the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) proposal for global aviation sectoral management of targets andmonitoring of emissions. It includes a reduction in total carbon emissions of 50 per cent by 2050 relativeto 2005; an improvement in fuel efficiency of an average of 2 per cent per year from now until 2020; and carbon-neutral growth by 2020. We will achieve these objectives through expectedadvances in four areas: technology, infrastructure and operational improvements, alternative fuels, andmarket-based measures.?

TECHNOLOGYThe latest technologies in aircraft and engine designcombined with operational best practice and modernnavigation equipment contribute to our community'ssteady reduction of GHG emissions. Business aircraftmust be as light as possible and use as little fuel aspossible in order to transport the maximum payload asfar as possible. It is not surprising then that businessaircraft manufacturers have led the way in the use ofinnovative technologies that allow for more efficientoperations. Manufacturers are committed to continueon this path: a business aircraft built in 2050 will be45 per cent more fuel efficient than one built in 2005.INFRASTRUCTURE AND OPERATORBEST PRACTICESCO2 emissions will also be reduced throughcollaboration with Air Traffic Management (ATM)providers to accelerate implementation of air trafficinfrastructure and procedures modernisation. Alongwith development and implementation of operationalbest practices to reduce fuel usage, these programmes098AVIATION" "BUSINESS AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURERSHAVE LED THE WAY IN THE USE OF INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES THAT ALLOW FORMORE EFFICIENT OPERATIONS...Right: President andCEO, European BusinessAviation Association,Brian Humphries Main Picture: Theaviation industry ispushing for sustainablealternative fuelswill deliver 14 per cent of the overall CO2 reductionsby 2050.ALTERNATIVE FUELSThe aviation industry is driving the research,development and deployment of commercially viable,sustainable alternative aviation fuels. The industry ispartnering with authorities in Europe and NorthAmerica to develop, certify and commerciallyimplement such fuels within the next few years. Basedon current research and the encouraging resultsalready demonstrated in flight, business aviationanticipates a CO2 life cycle reduction of 40 per cent inabsolute terms from biofuels by 2050. This is an areathat holds huge promise for significant GHG emissionsreductions, but it will require a sustained commitmentto funding research by national and other authorities.MARKET-BASED MEASURESThe successful achievement of carbon-neutral growthby 2020 will be challenging, since there will not be timeby then for improvements in technology, infrastructure
