Jan 2, 2022: The Danish government has set an ambitious goal of making all domestic flights in Denmark green by 2030, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said on Saturday.
“Will it be difficult? Yes, can it be done? Yes, I think so. We are already working on it. Talented researchers and businesses are working on a solution,” Frederiksen said in her new post.
He said in his address to the nation on New Year’s Day. “If we succeed, it will be a green development. Not only for Denmark, but for the whole world. If we have learned anything in recent years when it comes to handling big crises, it’s that we must never hesitate,” she said.
Frederiksen did not provide details on how this lofty goal would be achieved, but said his government was ready to introduce a tax on carbon dioxide emissions, despite opposition. The aviation industry is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases, and airlines are developing new and cleaner technologies, including those that reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents 290 airlines, accounting for 83% of global air traffic, pledged in October to emit pure zero carbon by 2050.
