Brisbane Airport welcomes Jet Zero council

Brisbane Airport said it welcomes the Australian government’s budget announcement of a ‘Jet Zero’-style council to guide the development of a policy framework to encourage emissions reduction in Australia’s aviation industry.

“Getting the policy right from the start is essential to the development of a domestic sustainable aviation fuel market,” said Raechel Paris, Executive General Manager of Sustainability at Brisbane Airport Corporation. “Next year the world will celebrate 120 years since the Wright Brothers became the first to harness powered flight. What a tribute to their legacy if 2023 also marked a turning point in reducing the impact of global aviation on the planet.”

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has accelerated its targets to reach net zero scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025. Scope 1 and 2 relate to emissions generated from BAC’s direct activity. However, BAC understands that Scope 3 accounts for the vast majority of emissions. Scope 3 includes activity by third parties, including businesses operating at Brisbane Airport, and of course, aviation.

“Increasing the use of SAF as an alternative to fossil fuels is essential for the de-carbonisation of the aviation industry sector and its long-term sustainability. And Brisbane Airport wants to be a leader in the SAF industry,” Paris said.

Brisbane Airport has signed onto the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow initiative, which seeks to accelerate the supply and use of sustainable aviation fuel to 10 percent by 2030. BNE is also the only Australian Airport to become a signatory for the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) Aviation Transition Strategy. The aviation sector through this MPP is activating an alliance of global partners to supercharge the decarbonisation of the industry.


Anyone who signs up to anything related to the World economic forum is nuts

The first emission to be stopped is hot air horsefeathers like this.

Agreed - the climate crisis does need to be stopped.

There is no crisis. The planet will happily enjoy a two degree rise in AVERAGE temperature and more CO2 will lead to a greening planet. A small rise in sea level will make sod all difference and the evidence shows the pacific island atolls are GROWING.

Now if we want to reduce emissions. Immediately remove the 250 knots below 10,000 requirement and cancel all holding. Ensure ALL airports install high speed taxi exits for all runways by the end of 2023 and finally remove all movement constraints at Sydney airport.

Fixed it for you.

How does getting rid of 250 kts/ 10,000 reduce emissions?

What ‘climate crisis’ is that ? The one in some green nutters mind… or the one Al Gore helped to sell to the likes of Goldman Sachs were he sold them on the trillions of dollars financial institutions will make from all the carbon trading scams and the compliance ‘industry’ management..

Well a good start will be to build more runways and airports everywhere to eliminate unnecessary holding. Get rid of 10NM ILS's. You should be joining at 5NM. Imagine the carbon savings with a 5NM reduction on every flight!!

Noise abatement and curfews are cancelled everywhere. This is a climate emergency!

Then we can shake up CASA and Airservices and sort out all the rules and restrictions that hinder the flow of traffic. Not to mention the stupid STARs & SIDs in this country.

Then they can look at the annual carbon output from traffic holding in Australia. Not to mention the delta burn on the fuel you have to carry to hold......

Then the wasted fuel taxiing around for a gate that isn't available.............

So burning bio fuel produces less carbon emissions ?
Obviously not, so why is this better for the environment ?
Suck out of the ground or grow on a farm and take food away from those that have none......

It's so cute how the climate alarmists think that humans can control the climate of a planet, I'm all for reducing emissions but please get over yourselves, the climate has been changing for 4.5 billion years and nothing we do will change solar flares, earth and moons orbits etc. As one scientist said "if you think global warming is bad, hope and pray you don't have to go through an ice age"

I’m not going to debate the finer points of a topic that’s not my area of expertise. I’ll leave that to the people who have spent their lives committed to the research and science behind it. I’m going to take a wild guess that you don’t fall into that category. I’m getting more of a University of YouTube vibe.

Imagine being told by a plumber that the science behind aerodynamics is wrong, because you know, it’s all a conspiracy by the woke media.

Jesus some of you are dense.

A bit like being told by a palaeontologist in 2007 that rainfall would become close to zero?

Really?!? You can’t figure it out?

Grow a crop that absorbs carbon from the atmosphere and it reduces atmospheric CO2. Burn it in a jet engine and you release the carbon but you then absorb it again by growing more of the crop. In theory a perfect system would be net zero.

Otherwise you release carbon from a source (oil) that absorbed carbon 10 million years ago. So you are only adding CO2 to the atmosphere today.

I remember him giving the impression that if may never rain in Australia again!

Control the climate? Who’s claiming to be doing that? Adversely affecting? Yes. Controlling? No

This wonderful cartoon puts the current rate of temperature change in perspective. You’ll be pleased to know adbf, the earths orbit and ice age get a mention.

You’d have thought pilots would understand why rate of change is the issue here

Brisbane Airport has signed onto the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow initiative


Which will inevitably result in a "Green" surcharge on passenger air fares into and out of Brisbane.
