ERA is committed to supporting a transition to more sustainable aviation. To achieve this requires utilising a basket of measures and the association is therefore active on a number of environmental initiatives, including the EU ETS, CORSIA, the European Green Deal and Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs), to ensure they are fit for purpose for the industry and can make a real contribution to reducing aviation's environmental footprint.

See also our sustainable aviation pages here for more information on our sector and our members' environmental initiatives.
