What was the challenge?
As Australia’s aviation sector has grown, so too have its emissions. As we face into a global climate crisis, the aviation sector is aware of its responsibilities to decrease emissions. The Australian Roadmap for Sustainable Flying: Reaching Net Zero by 2050 was initiated by Airlines for Australia and New Zealand (A4ANZ) on behalf of its members. These members include Air New Zealand, Jetstar, Qantas, Rex and Virgin Australia.
Frontier Economics was engaged to undertake the modelling and analysis which underpins this Roadmap. Specifically, to model the emissions reduction potential of various abatement options for meeting net zero by 2050.
