Net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to as close to zero as possible. Firms that achieve net zero emissions are called “carbon neutral.” Companies are under pressure to cut emissions as countries aim to achieve their climate commitments. Emissions are offset by supporting projects that reduce emissions or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

Most emissions in the ADS sector are from aircraft built for the commercial aviation sector. These emissions, which are not created directly by the manufacturer, are known as Scope 3 emissions and are typically the most difficult for companies to measure and reduce.

The “Net Zero Strategies in Aerospace, Defense, and Security” thematic intelligence report gives you an in-depth insight into the net zero targets and performance of 20 leading ADS companies. The report elucidates the importance of a net zero strategy in the ADS sector along with the progress made by the leading companies to achieve the emission target. These detailed analyses are critical in developing effective business plans to gain a competitive edge.
