Tripborn also considers it a business imperative. Environmental concerns have a significant impact on public policy towards Transportation and aviation, from restrictions on airport expansion to passenger taxes. It is therefore in the Company’s interest to ensure that both Tripborn and the wider industry properly address environmental concerns.
Aviation emissions continue to increase. Over the last ten years global aviation traffic has grown by over 5% a year, while efficiency gains have been about 2%. Unless the industry can reverse this trend there is a real risk it will be subjected to growth constraints; a suggestion already put forward by the Committee on Climate Change in their December 2009 report.
To prevent this, the industry needs to significantly reduce emissions from flying through step-changes in technology and the right incentives to ensure that airlines and passengers fly as efficiently as possible.
We are committed to combat climate change, reduce carbon emissions and address the issues of local air pollution and noise.
