SustainabilityFocusThe discussion will cover the different approaches to the issue of sustainability in aviation (e.g. flight ban for domestic flights and governments’ incentives for purchase and use of SAF), investigating their impact on the reduction of CO2 in the sector and evaluating the strategies to which the aviation industry reacts with more participation. The topic will also address the relevance of new technologies to promote sustainability, including the most virtuous applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in recent years and the future of vertiplanes.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
