题目: Challenges and opportunities of aviation industry under increasing environmental concerns: Amsterdam and Hong Kong airports

摘要: Climate change has become an issue that has aroused much public concern around the world in recent years. Public concerns over the potentially significant impacts of aviation on climate have pressured governments to control greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from air transport. Will "business as usual" technological progress be sufficient to stabilize GHG emissions from air transportation in the mid- to long-term? The answer is no. According to OECD (2008) air transportation could, based on a business-as-usual scenario, grow from 14.8% in 2010, to 23% of total transportation's CO2 emissions in 2050. (The world transportation sector emitted about a quarter of total CO2 emissions.) This is due partly to more readily available environmentally friendly energy in the future for ground-based transportation compared to air transportation, as well as the faster growth rate of air transportation compared to other modes. In this talk, I will first discuss challenges and opportunities faced by aviation industry under increasing environmental concerns. I will then examine how the Amsterdam and Hong Kong airports deal with the problems and compare their similarities and differences. Finally, I will discuss research opportunities in the area.
