WWF responds to EasyJet emissions announcement

WWF climate change specialist James Beard commented on the announcement that EasyJet has cut the carbon emissions of its flights

“All efforts to cut carbon emissions are welcome, so it’s pleasing to see EasyJet flying more efficiently. However aviation remains the most carbon-intensive way to travel and one of the fastest growing sources of carbon emissions in the world so we need much more action then just airlines tinkering around the edges.

“We should be looking at cleaner ways to keep connected, such as international rail and videoconferencing. The UK Government needs to face this problem head on and come up with a credible plan for dealing with aviation emissions before building any new runways or just hoping that actions of individual operators deal with the problem.”
