Our vision

We aim to reach a sustainable balance between aviation growth and the control of CO2 emissions by playing our part in the worldwide effort,

mobilizing our industry and reducing our own impact.


Air transport greenhouse gas emissions

Global warming is the result of an increase in the greenhouse effect. Man-made activities, man-made activities increase the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and trap more solar radiation.  

The air transport sector contributes around 2% of global CO2 emissions and 1.6% of total greenhouse gas emissions.



Note that around 80% of Air France’s emissions come from long-haul aircraft that account for around 20% of all flights. There is no substitute method of transport for passengers or for cargo aircarfts carrying express goods such as valuables or perishable foodstuffs.
