Marine and Aviation Program Director, The International Council on Clean Transportation

Description 

The air travel guilt sweeping Europe poses a “clear and present danger if we don’t get on top of it,” JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes warned investors recently. Teen activist Greta Thunberg has famously denounced flying, and studies show that rising environmental concerns are already curbing the number of flights purchased.

With the airline industry expecting to take a hit from increased climate awareness, what are travel executives doing to adapt? Is CORSIA — a voluntary agreement to measure and eventually reduce carbon emissions from aviation — a sufficient solution, or industry greenwashing?

Join us for a conversation with Dan Rutherford, program director for marine and aviation at the International Council on Clean Transportation, and representatives from United Airlines and Boeing on the flight industry’s existential challenge and what airlines are doing to green their game.
