This third European Aviation Environmental Report has been prepared by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) with support from the European Environment Agency (EEA) and EUROCONTROL. Its development was coordinated by a Steering Group made up of representatives of these three organisations as well as the European Commission; the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology; the Netherlands Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment; the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation; the Clean Sky Aviation Joint Undertaking and the SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking who all separately contributed to the report.

The Steering Group gratefully acknowledges the support of the Advisory Group, whose representatives1 provided valuable input and comments on the report. The latest information on actions being undertaken by all parts of the aviation sector is provided within the ‘Stakeholder Actions’ boxes. The continued collaboration with this diverse set of organisations ensures that the report provides a balanced perspective.
