Sustainability and climate change are hot topics in the wake of COP26.  Burning fossil fuel in jets is an environmental issue, but there are alternatives in synthetic aviation fuel to biogas.  The RAF is working to fight these sustainability challenges to tackle global warming and achieve net zero by 2040 to move towards a carbon-neutral future - both in the air and on the ground.
