  • World airlines on Monday called on governments to support the industry’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
  • The plea at a meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) came three months before a crucial gathering of the United Nations’ intergovernmental agency supporting aviation.
  • IATA’s 2050 target is in accordance with goals of the landmark 2015 Paris climate accord to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.
