4AIR Teams with Cambridge on Net Zero Flight Initiative

 - December 9, 2021, 1:13 PM

Aviation sustainability solutions company 4AIR has partnered with the Aviation Impact Accelerator (AIA)—led by the University of Cambridge—to develop interactive, evidence-based tools to engage decision-makers, aviation industry, and the public about how to achieve Net Zero Flight. The partnership is being financed by 4AIR and its Aviation Climate Fund, which uses contributions from 4AIR clients based on their carbon footprint to support research and development for future aviation technologies and emission reduction solutions.

“To meet ambitious sustainability goals such as Net Zero Flight, we will need future technologies that enable actual emissions reductions within the industry beyond carbon offsets and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF),” said 4AIR president Kennedy Ricci. “Our partnership with the Aviation Impact Accelerator will support bringing the leading academics and industry practitioners together to identify new paths to Net Zero Flight.”

With this support, the Aviation Impact Accelerator will advance efforts to help achieve emissions reductions by capturing the entire system, from the sources of power and raw materials to the production and transport of fuel and the introduction of new aircraft technologies and operations. This will provide a comprehensive picture to guide support around new technologies, the partners said.
