TPI research on world’s top airlines generates considerable global media coverage

14th Mar 2019 /

On 5 March, TPI released new research on the world’s top 20 publicly-listed airline companies. Based on analysis by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change at the LSE, and underpinned by FTSE Russell data, the findings generated considerable media interest and coverage internationally, in both mainstream and specialist press.

Some of the coverage focussed on the airlines making the most (and least) progress towards addressing climate change and cutting CO2 emissions; however, all highlighted that none of the airlines studied are adequately planning long-term for emissions’ reductions or low-carbon transition – and that climate change efforts had to be stepped-up.

The industry’s reliance on ‘off-setting’ emissions with other industries was picked-up by many outlets, along with the long-term risk of losses to investors in the sector, due to its failure to strategically plan for climate change.
