Policy     Economics     Technologies


In today’s world, aviation fulfils a number of pivotal functions. It facilitates economic growth and cultural exchange, provides an efficient means of international transport and creates employment. Sustainable development of aviation requires careful consideration of the benefits and impacts, though. We have been engaged in studies in this field for many years and have built up expertise on:

International aviation:

  • Environmental impacts (climate, noise, air pollution)
  • Economic impacts (direct and indirect employment and added value, spill-over effects)
  • Policies to balance the benefits and impacts (aviation and ETS, standards, economic policies, corporate social responsibility)


  • Integrated consideration of the benefits and impacts of airport development
  • Social cost-benefit analyses
  • Development of environmental strategies and airport policy
  • Airport regulations and legislation
