Aviation is fundamental to the world economy and keeping people connected. Today more than ever, it plays a vital role in expanding horizons and broadening opportunities to work, live and learn, for people all around the world. If even more people, communities and businesses are to enjoy these benefits the aviation sector must grow responsibly and play its part in a net-zero future.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, aviation produced around one billion tonnes of carbon emissions in 2019, accounting for 3% of total emissions released into the atmosphere globally. And yet, aviation has been neglected when it comes to decarbonization. Action now is critical if society is to meet the Paris Agreement’s target to limit global warming to 1.5°C.


2-3% of total global CO2 emissions.

1 million homes’ energy use equivalent.

100% Projected increase in airline traffic by 2035.

Strategic Approach

  • Inspire leaders throughout aviation’s value chain on the African continent to take action.
  • Resolve the “chicken and egg” scenario where producers and consumers are each unable to shoulder the initial costs of investing in new technologies
  • Contribute to scaling sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and other clean propulsion technologies in Africa through advocacy, investment bargains, and other sustainable means.


  • Partner with aviation companies across the African continent to boost/promote circularity within the aviation sector.
  • Accelerate the supply and use less carbon aviation fuel supply by 2040.
