Overview

Welcome to the Sustainable Skies World Summit

As the impact of climate change continues to dominate headlines around the world, the spotlight is on the international aviation industry to demonstrate their commitment to building a more sustainable future for aerospace. Here at Farnborough International we strive to utilize our world-renowned convening power to encourage and facilitate discussions that drive meaningful actions and time-critical solutions. 

The Sustainable Skies World Summit will provide a platform for industry experts, leading academics and governments from around the world to share insight, discuss and debate the barriers that face industry on the path to net zero.

Taking place at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre on the 5th and 6th of April 2022, this two-day conference will challenge the aviation sector with establishing a new global aerospace sustainability agenda that accelerates the pace of change within industry. The summit programme will set out to find the fundamental answers at the heart of aviation’s sustainability question, driving honest conversations and debates from all corners of industry.

Join us for two days of insight, collaboration and action surrounding the biggest challenge facing the future of the aviation industry for a must-attend event where no question is off limits.

Join us for the SSWS Webinar:

 

On the 8th of December, FIA Connect will be hosting a unique event focused on sustainability in aviation, featuring thought-provoking content from some of the world’s most insightful pioneers. A webinar titled ‘What’s the cost of delivering net zero emissions and who pays?’, is set to begin the debate about some of the most pressing issues that were featured at COP26.

The session will provide the viewers with an opportunity to engage with the speakers and to ask them questions or suggest ideas on how they believe the industry should move towards achieving net zero emissions.
