Aviation and the Environment [ENV-ENV]

Classroom Course
This course provides a unique multi-stakeholder overview of the environmental impact of the aviation sector. It also addresses measures that can be taken to maintain the sector’s current operations whilst securing its future sustainable development. The last part of the course demonstrates how collaboration and communication between stakeholders can be achieved by Collaborative Environmental Management (CEM). The participants will be given the opportunity to apply both their professional practices and the knowledge acquired over the course through a series of interactive sessions and practical exercises.
The 2020 package is a set of binding legislation to ensure that the EU meets its climate and energy targets for the year 2020. This package sets three key targets:
 
  • 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels)
  • 20% of EU energy from renewables
  • 20% improvement in energy efficiency
The targets were set by EU leaders in 2007 and enacted in legislation in 2009. They are also headline targets of the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.  The EU is taking action in several areas to meet the targets.
