11 Sustainable Aviation Trends For 2023

The year of upheaval

The right and wrong way to communicate your sustainability strategy

With environmental campaigners seeing overconsumption as a root cause of global warming and perceiving air travel as a symbol of so-called ‘luxury emissions’, we expect to see climate activists increase the pressure on the industry in 2023.

More direct action – disruptive protests at airports – is, in fact, one of our predictions for 2023.

But there are others, which give reasons for optimism as the industry starts to decarbonise.

11 Key Trends for 2023

The year of Non-CO2 emissions

The subject of aviation’s non-CO2 impact, such as contrails, will move front and centre in 2023.

The year of intentional flying

In 2023, we expect to see more people making more careful flight choices, such as choosing the least carbon-intensive route, combining business trips and vacations, or even swapping short flights for the train.

The year of direct action

We will see more disruptive climate change protests at airports, for example, runway occupations.
