In the first edition of EURACTIV’s Yellow Room, we are talking about the European airline industry’s sustainability plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The aviation sector is facing the double challenge of coming up with alternative fuel solutions but also recovering from the crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. To shed some light on the latest developments we are joined by EURACTIV’S transport editor Sean Goulding Carroll.
We are also talking about the concerns among the EU members regarding the delays in the implementation of the EU’s recovery plan, meant to help economies turn the corner after the pandemic-induced crisis. We are dissecting the process until the first funds start flowing in summer and how the European market is being viewed by the investors. To break down the components of the Commission’s plan, we spoke with Jorge Valero, EURACTIV’s economy and trade editor.
