The Dutch government is digesting a ‘Smart and Sustainable’ report outlining a growth strategy for aviation in the Netherlands.
Twenty transport organisations and institutions combined to produce the report, with the aim of accelerating existing developments to make aviation more sustainable. The strategy targets a 35% cut in CO 2 emissions from Dutch civil aviation originating in the Netherlands by 2030.
Methods to achieve this objective include more efficient procedures such as flight route optimisation, encouraging cleaner aircraft by levying airport fees, introducing sustainable fuel, renewing airline fleets, encouraging train journeys over short distances, improving the journey to the airport, and creating emissions-free airports.
