Global Sustainable Aviation Forum / COP28

The aviation industry invites visitors to the COP 28 Green zone to join the Global Sustainable Aviation Forum / COP28 on Wednesday 6 December 2023 in Dubai.

The Forum is a side event during the UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP28), which is being hosted by the United Arab Emirates in Dubai in November / December 2023.


In 2021, the global aviation industry declared that it will achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, supported by accelerated efficiency measures, energy transition (including sustainable aviation fuel) and innovation across the sector in partnership with governments around the world.  

Government support for net zero (a crucial element) was confirmed in October 2022 when a similar goal was adopted for international flights during the 41st session of the ICAO Assembly.

Key topics

ATAG's Global Sustainable Aviation Forum / COP28 will showcase the latest innovations and developments in the field of aviation climate action.  We will focus on:

  • radical future technologies and enhancements to existing aircraft
  • operational improvements
  • aviation's energy transition
  • sustainable aviation fuel: supply and demand, scale up in production, investment needs and opportunities.

We would like to extend a thank you to the event supporters.

Our sector has placed climate action as one of its highest priorities. It will be a significant challenge to meet net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, but the evidence shows that with the right support from governments and efforts across the value chain, especially the energy industry, it is achievable.
