Title: Sustainable Aviation

Sustainable Aviation
Aviation and the Environment - State of Play
Conference 2 November 2005
Dr Mike Steeden Director, Civil Air Transport
2 November 2005
Manufacturers supplying the civil air
transport, aerospace defence, homeland security
and space markets.
  • Unique a manufacturing industry which is
    internationally competitive UK aerospace
    accounts for 13 of world market
  • 114,000 directly employed, 255,000 jobs supported
    in total in the UK
  • Employs 45,000 people and generates 4.9 billion
    of turnover outside the UK.
  • Latest figures show turnover at 18 billion, new
    orders up 28 to 22.6 billion the highest
    level since 1998 - and productivity up by 8.
  • 2005 is looking equally promising for both civil
    and defence sectors with worldwide aircraft
    orders at the highest levels for five years and
    production levels up 26.

Building for the future
  • a strategic approach to develop the business and
    remain the no 1 player outside the US

Manufacturing part of the wider UK aviation
industrial community
  • UK aviation supports 675,000 jobs directly and
    indirectly in the UK
  • UK aviation generates a 14 billion value-added
    contribution to GDP
  • UK aviation delivers one third (by value) of the
    UKs exports 13 billion

  • A world first for the UK and a unique
    collaboration between the major industrial
    stakeholders in UK aviation.
  • Foreword by Prime Minister.
  • Shared commitments to deliver an aviation
    sustainable development strategy, including
    biennial publication of progress report.
  • Comprehensive, designed to ensure that the
    industry is fully embracing sustainable
    development goals.
  • Launched 20 June 2005

Background to the strategy
  • Public debate on aviation and environment HMG
    sustainable development strategy
  • Engagement with Ministers, Sustainable
    Development Commission, Pioneers Group, Society
    of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
  • Air Transport White Paper Dec 2003
  • Initiated through Greener by Design
  • Aerospace Innovation and Growth Team
  • Part-funded by DfT/DTI

An holistic, balanced approach, emphasising
  • Recognises all effects and impacts of aviation
  • Economic
  • Social
  • Environmental
  • Aims to reflect the Air Transport White Paper
    balance between the economic benefits of aviation
    and the environmental challenges it creates.
  • By working with government and society the
    industry can demonstrate that economic success,
    social progress and respect for the environment
    can go hand in hand.
  • Prime Ministers foreword to Sustainable Aviation

Broad UK aviation support
  • British Airways, Easyjet, First Choice, flybe,
    Monarch, Thomas Cook, Thompson and Virgin
  • British Airports Authority (BAA) and most UK
  • Airbus UK, BAE SYSTEMS, Bombardier Aerospace
    Belfast, Cobham, Defence Aviation Repair Agency,
    Doncasters, GKN plc, Marshall of Cambridge
    Aerospace, Meggitt, Messier-Dowty, Rolls Royce,
    Smiths Group.
  • National Air Traffic Services (NATS)
  • Airport Operators Association (AoA)
  • British Air Transport Association (BATA)
  • SBAC

Structure of the strategy
15 year time-frame, built around 8 goals, 34
Commitments on climate change
  • Airline and airport signatories to build support,
    assist in developing practical solutions for
    inclusion of aircraft CO2 emissions in the EU
    Emissions Trading Scheme by 2008
  • Improving fuel efficiency by 50 by 2020 (the
    Advisory Council on Aeronautic Research in Europe
    ACARE targets)
  • Support research into non-CO2 effects of aviation
  • Inform passengers and look at offsets
  • Common reporting of direct CO2 emissions and fuel

The challenge of ACARE
Possible design solutions
Meeting the ACARE 50 fuel burn target needs
advances in all areas
Commitments on noise
  • Reduce external noise by 50 by 2020
  • Mitigation initiatives
  • Develop and promote low-noise procedures
  • Support operating restrictions where less
    restrictive solutions are not available
  • Engage with noise-affected communities

Commitments on local air quality
  • Reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 80 by 2020
  • Contribute to measurement and research
  • Continue to improve ground vehicles, supply of
    ground power and availability of cleaner fuels
  • Quantify trade-offs

Recommendations to government
  • 12 in all, including
  • Continuing to work through the International
    Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and other
    relevant international organisations, to define
    solutions at an international level
  • Continuing to take a leading role in ensuring the
    delivery of the AeIGT National Aerospace
    Technology Strategy.. ensuring funding
    mechanisms are available to enable manufacturers
    to maintain the drive towards technological and
    operational targets
  • Encouraging and facilitating Industry and
    Academic studies on technical and economic
    impacts, and on trade offs, aimed at meeting
    environmental targets, including active support
    to link international research in this area.

  • Industry trade bodies are committed to
    establishing a joint mechanism to implement the
    sustainability strategy, increasing participation
    and strengthening commitments.

Delivering the commitments
  • Sustainable Aviation Working Group (SAWG) set up
    Aug 05
  • SAWG responsible for co-ordinating sectoral
  • Champions responsible for commitment delivery
    have been identified
  • Delivery will require significant cross-sector
  • SAWG is overseen by the Sustainable Aviation
    Council members from all sectors and major
    aviation companies
  • Inaugural meeting of Council 7 November 2005

Sustainable Aviation Council
  • Airport sector
  • Keith Jowett AOA, Helen Murley, BAA
  • possibly with Manchester airport representative
  • Airline sector

Timetable to first progress report
Taking the strategy forward in the SBAC
  • SBAC Sustainable Aviation Board responsible for
    ensuring sector delivers on its commitments
  • Working with companies to assess progress towards
    ACARE targets
  • Working with the Environmental Special Interest
    Group to promote best practice, raise awareness
    and benchmark performance
  • Working with companies on Environmental
    Management Systems implementation (ISO14001,
    Airbus/ EU Site and Product Oriented EMS
  • SBAC Climate Change programme

The Aerospace Innovation and Growth Team National
Aerospace Technology Strategy
Supply chain EMS status
Company environmental policy
Climate change agreement performance
  • 30 manufacturing sites from 11 companies
    re-certified at milestone 2.
  • More than 1million benefit per annum to
  • Carbon credits for 42,225 tonne equivalent CO2
  • Over-performance of 8 against sector targets

The strategy outlined marks a significant step
change in aviations response to the
environmental issues and signals our commitment
to the long-term sustainable development of our
