Decarbonisation through Digitalisation report
This report focuses on how digitalisation can help accelerate decarbonisation and aims to offer tangible recommendations to translate current efforts into consistent zero-carbon precision for aircraft.
Decarbonising aviation is now on the agenda of every executive in the aerospace industry. The pandemic and related disruptions have led aviation experts to outline structural changes that could rebuild the industry enable their lowcarbon aspirations.
That said, decarbonising the future of flight is easier said than done. Without a proper ecosystem to address and implement end-to-end low-carbon operations and infrastructure, the industry’s revenue models could be at risk.
While there are many possible technological levers today such as green hydrogen or electric aircraft, the industry is now focusing on building the right expertise around the industrialisation of these new technologies and building the right ecosystem of partners to deliver them at scale.
Digitalisation affects every part of the decarbonisation process. This fact is truly roadmap agnostic and features in every lever regardless of which path is taken. Some of the recommendations from the report include:
- Tackle sustainability and innovation together
- Improve understanding of how digital tools can accelerate transformation (tech, economic challenges and opportunities)
- Focus on systems based and disruptive change
- Rally your value network (ecosystem / supply chain) and secure infrastructure support
