In early 2020, Ascent announced its commitment to sustainability, by signing the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Pledge in order to achieve a climate neutral world by 2050. This commitment marked an important milestone in the progress of air mobility to limit its impact on the climate crisis. As warned by Niclas Svenningsen, Manager, Global Climate Action, “air travel is a significant contributor to global warming”.
At Ascent, we strongly believe a carbon neutral future can be our reality, a future good for the environment and good for the people. We are very proud to fulfill our commitment towards Climate Neutral Now pledge by being climate neutral in 2020.
To achieve climate neutrality we measure and reduce our carbon emissions, we contribute to offsetting projects and we catalyse the entry of all-electric aircraft such as eVTOLs. “With the advent of eVTOLs, we believe the industry is well prepared for the low-carbon economy” said Lionel Sinai-Sinelnikoff, Founder and CEO at Ascent.
Our business model of private and ride-shared flights on fuel efficient helicopters and planes not only open access to air mobility but also help reduce carbon emissions and encourage sustainable form of aviation.
“We hope to see the whole transportation industry transitioning to a sustainable model very soon, and invite other companies to follow Ascent’s example” said Niclas Svenningsen.
