Welcome on board British Airways’ most important journey yet

Last year, British Airways outlined their roadmap to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 through their new sustainability programme BA Better World.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The programme puts sustainability at the heart of their business, creating a great place for people to work, reduce aircraft emissions and waste and contribute to the communities they serve to build a thriving, resilient, responsible business. These actions will help make a more connected world for everyone to live in.

While there is no single solution to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, they have outlined a clear roadmap of short-, medium- and long-term initiatives to get there. In the short term, this includes improving operational efficiency, investing in more efficient aircraft, funding carbon offset and removal projects to mitigate emissions on UK domestic flights and progressively introducing sustainable aviation fuels using waste feedstocks. While in the medium to longer term, they’re continuing to invest in the development and scale-up of sustainable aviation fuel and looking at ways to help accelerate the growth of new technologies such as zero emissions hydrogen-powered aircraft and carbon capture technology.

They are already flying more fuel-efficient aircraft including A350s, 787s, A320 and A321neos, which are up to 40 per cent more fuel-efficient than the 747. Their entire fleet of Boeing 747s has been retired, years earlier than previously planned.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
