In February 2020, Field launched Sustainable Aviation’s 2050 net zero roadmap, a detailed report laying out how the industry would achieve net zero and the policy changes required to deliver this.
To maximise political and public engagement we designed a giant pledge board that industry CEOs and the Transport Secretary signed.
We secured 70+ pieces of editorial coverage including Sky News, Channel 4 News, BBC News, The Times, The FT, The Guardian, Daily Mail and BusinessGreen.
Since then we’ve helped coordinate new research identifying potential regional clusters that could become sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production hubs.
In 2021, we launched a follow-up report on interim 2030 and 2040 emission reduction targets, setting out industry commitments and policy action required to deliver these. Two Cabinet Ministers – Grant Shapps and Kwasi Kwarteng – spoke at the launch event, and report was covered by the FT in an exclusive that Field secured.
We also worked with the DfT and Cabinet Office to secure a “Jet Zero” session in the official COP26 fringe programme.
