Aviation Sector Stepping Up to Counter Climate Change?
Time for all players in aviation industry to use the .Earth web domain
On average, there are roughly 100,000 flights per day all around the world, and the number is expected to double in the next 10 years. In 2021, there were 22.2 million domestic flights, and this number seems to be increasing.
These are some astounding statistics. Clearly, air travel has become a quite normal mode of transportation all across the world. But, what is the environmental price we are paying for the convenience of flying?
Experts believe that emissions from flights can stay in the atmosphere for centuries. Since these emissions are released higher in the atmosphere, they trigger stronger reactions that heat the planet.
So, what’s the aviation sector to do – especially when demand for air travel continues to grow?
At the recent International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) assembly, a United Nation’s body has agreed to a highly aspirational goal of having the aviation sector reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
This is certainly a lofty challenge. However, on the heels of the ICAO meeting, American Airlines announced that it plans to fuel regional jets on partial hydrogen power by 2025. Aviation Week Magazine also recently stated ongoing monitoring will be critical for achieving this 2050 goal.
In addition to monitoring, it is important for airlines, and virtually every player in the aviation supply chain, to communicate their ongoing efforts to reach net zero by 2050.
This can be achieved by developing landing pages and micro-sites that share all key milestones and efforts with all possible stakeholders – from customers to lawmakers to other industry players, and beyond.
.Earth is the perfect web domain for these micro-sites and landing pages. Being branded with this specialized web domain, it is possible to more effectively communicate your company’s commitment to this important environmental pledge.
