Air transport required to clean its acts

Air transport gets more energy efficient as it comes under scrutiny for its environmental impact

Transportation is a major source of emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG); air transport is a contributor and efforts have been under way to cut emissions from the sector for many years.

IEC standardization work contributes significantly to this development.
