Sustainable Skies World Summit to Support the Acceleration to Net Zero Aviation

The first instalment of Sustainable Skies World Summit sets out to support the acceleration of net zero aviation with an insight-packed agenda.

Created and hosted by Farnborough International in partnership with Sustainable Aviation, the Sustainable Skies World Summit is taking place 5-6 April 2022 at Farnborough International’s world-class Exhibition & Conference Centre.

As one of the first large-scale event of its kind in the world, the summit will support the Sustainable Aviation coalition’s agenda, which sets out to collectively achieve a cleaner, quieter, and smarter future for the industry.

Following closely on from the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda, and ahead of the Farnborough International Airshow and Aerospace Global Forum, the Sustainable Skies World Summit will drive the sustainability agenda for the global aviation industry, spearheading pioneering innovations, conversations and building connections.

The industry-leading programme has been designed to challenge the perspective of the aviation industry; bringing to light the difficult conversations for sector leaders, discussing opportunities to accelerate the transition to net zero aviation and reviewing and tackling the outcomes from COP26.
