    Communication activities

    ATAG provides a collaborative environment to foster the exchange of ideas, joint approaches to common issues and a united voice to ensure governments, industry and civil society can work together to progress the sustainable development of air transport.

    ATAG specifically plays an active role in bringing together its partners worldwide to improve communications about aviation's goal of net-zero carbon by 2050. In October 2022, the aviation sector became one of the first in the world to adopt a global long-term net-zero carbon goal. It achieved this by aligning aviation behind a common approach to decarbonisation and then encouraged governments to adopt the same goal.

    In the same year, ATAG enlisted help from the next generation of aviation leaders, asking young aviation professionals to send a video message to the world's governments through social media to adopt a long-term goal that would serve their future jobs and connect the world. ATAG created a #FlyNetZero campaign with the participation of 65 young aviation professionals, creation of three main videos in English, French, Spanish and Mandarin.

    ATAG provides access to a wide range of information via its websites (www.aviationbenefits.org and www.atag.org) and publications and factsheets which provide a global perspective on air transport sustainability and climate issues as well as the social and economic benefits of aviation. These include:

    - Beginner's guide to sustainable aviation fuels, 2023
    - What will it cost to get to net-zero carbon for global aviation, 2022
    - Aviation industry position on the development of a long-term climate goal at ICAO, 2022
    - Aide Memoire: aviation climate action, 2022
    - Fly Net Zero signature video outlining the push for a climate agreement at ICAO, 2022
    - Declaration video featuring 47 young aviation professionals, 2022
    - Commitment to Fly Net Zero, 2021

    Meetings

    4 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
