EBACE2024 Newsmakers Session to Feature Association, Industry Leaders’ Perspectives on Sector’s Global Mission to Net Zero

26 May 2024

Organizers for Europe’s premier business aviation event today announced that the show’s May 27 Media Day will include a Newsmakers session featuring leading business aviation association and industry figures in a discussion focused on the sector’s global drive to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The session, including International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) Director General Kurt Edwards, Luxaviation Group CEO Patrick Hansen and 4AIR President Kennedy Ricci, will be jointly moderated by National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen and European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) Secretary General Holger Krahmer.

Association leaders will discuss the efforts underway – on both sides of the Atlantic, and in the global policy arena – to innovate toward a net-zero future, educate decisionmakers about the industry’s sustainability leadership and advocate for an agenda that supports the sector’s carbon-reduction aims.  

The session – which will conclude with a special announcement – will be the first of many at EBACE focused on sustainability, and will tee up the event’s Sustainability Summit, which will run 28-30 May.

EBACE2024, taking place at Geneva’s Palexpo and Geneva Airport 28-30 May, is co-hosted by NBAA and EBAA.
