Aviation Emissions in the Context of Climate Change: a Consumption-Production Approach

by Alice Bows, Sarah Mander, Sally Randles and Kevin Anderson

- This report presents the results of a research project investigating consumption-production systems within the aviation industry. The aim of the study was to understand better the drivers of growth within this sector and thereby highlight opportunities for policymakers to address the pressing issue of growth in emissions from aviation in the context of climate change mitigation. The project engaged with aviation industry representatives in addition to a number of ‘frequent flyer’ consumers.
