European Business Aviation SAF Summit
20 April 2021
Brussels, Belgium [Virtual]

Building on past events, such as the Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit in Washington DC, the Business Aviation Coalition on Sustainable Aviation Fuels is organising the first-ever European counterpart. This virtual half-day event brings together high-level EU officials from all relevant institutions, including the EU Commission, Council and Parliament, and the entire business aviation value chain under one goal – accelerating the availability and use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). The Summit provides an opportunity for the global business aviation community to discuss the factors that are holding back the full deployment and commercialisation of SAF with European policymakers. Attendance is free with prior registration.

2021 ICAO Stocktaking on aviation in-sector CO2 emissions reductions
31 August – 2 September 2021
Montreal, Canada [Virtual]

Building on the 2020 ICAO Stocktaking event, which displayed over 100 innovative solutions to unlock current and future CO2 aviation emissions reduction potentials, along with strong commitments and ambitious roadmaps to zero emissions, the 2021 ICAO Stocktaking will provide a forum for the exchange and collection of information and data between all aviation stakeholders, covering the three areas for in-sector reductions: technologies, operations and sustainable aviation fuels. During the four-day event, aeronautical pioneers, industry leaders, technical experts, researchers, innovators, civil society advocates and States will illustrate their concrete and ambitious plans for decarbonising international aviation. The event will conclude with a policy day, featuring high-level interventions to discuss the link between the post-pandemic green recovery and the future of sustainable aviation.
