Nordic Sustainable Aviation
The report “Nordic Sustainable Aviation” is commissioned by the Danish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers (2020). The report has been prepared by the Institute of Transport Economics (TØI) and the process towards publishing and dissemination has been overseen by Nordic Energy Research (NER).
The report explores challenges and opportunities for a strengthened Nordic cooperation on increasing the sustainability of aviation by 2030, possibly with a knock-on effect in the European aviation industry. The report presents current policy frameworks in each Nordic country and outlines five areas with potential for a common Nordic political approach: 1) a fuel blending mandate, 2) CO2 equivalent reduction requirements, 3) establishing a Sustainable Aviation Fuel-fund, 4) fuel taxes and 5) passenger taxes.
