Aviation’s share of manmade CO2 emissions – while still modest – has risen to ~2.5% globally. This share will become larger in the coming decades if no corrective actions are taken.
The new European Partnership for Clean Aviation will support the development of revolutionary technologies designed to drive aviation’s emissions burden down to zero, while at the same time securing a competitive edge for European air manufacturers on the global market.
The transformation of the space industry: a series of technological and business model innovations that have led to a significant reduction in costs and resulted in the provision of new products and services. Europe is becoming an innovative space technology hub.
Space is part of everyone’s daily life, to an extent that we do not even fully realise: from weather forecast to climate monitoring and disaster management, from navigation to telecommunication and exploration of the Solar System. The world relies on Space data for more and more activities and our sector is expanding to gather more information to provide better services.
But what can we do to minimize the impacts of satellite operations both on ground and in orbit? Airbus is working with institutions, private companies and the public to tackle the global challenges in a responsible way to make Earth a better place for future generations. Encompassing and expanding the role of Space as Sustainability Enabler far more than we may think at first glance.
USA, China, Russia and India are announcing their own plans for expanding Human presence in the solar system. Actually global space exploration is at a turning point, reaching to a new exploitation of low Earth orbit, not only as departing point of the beloved roadmap to the Moon and Mars, but also with pragmatic strategic and economic huge ambitions.
Europe shall now embrace this reality and decide to be part of it, or not.
European expertise, capabilities and technologies shall ensure that European companies, large and small, established and emerging, are given a chance to contribute.
