The Climate Action Network published a policy manual on June 03, 2020 for governments on how to attach carbon emission targets to bailouts provided to the aviation industry. The manual lists further policy recommendations for aligning this industry with the goals of the Paris Agreement and achieving net-zero aviation emissions by 2050. Policies should address the monitoring of carbon emissions from the aviation industry to regularly adjust emissions caps, strengthen the introduction of and research on fuel efficiency targets and standards, adjust industry-specific regulatory and tax frameworks to make them consistent with the carbon objectives, and empower consumer decisions by providing better data transparency.
