  1. The One in Five Challenge

  2. Introducing The One in Five Challenge • The Business Case for the Challenge • Meeting the Challenge

  3. Why does WWF care about flying? • Climate change is the biggest global threat to natural world, people and wildlife • Aviation is one of fastest growing sources of GHGs, and currently the technological improvements are developing too slowly to compensate • If emissions are not stabilised, aviation could take up most of the UK carbon budget by 2050 – how to meet 80% reduction target without penalising the rest of the economy?

  4. What’s the link – WWF, aviation and business? • WWF has the environmental expertise, the brand and the political clout to help companies pursue their sustainability agenda to find practical solutions • Flying represents significant share of business carbon footprint -can be as much as 50% for some companies • Carbon savings could be significant: if all European companies cut business flights by 20% they would save 22 million tonnes of CO2 • Conditions are right for encouraging a shift in business flying culture • Alternatives – audio, web and video conferencing & High Speed Rail • Regulation and fiscal measures pushing carbon reduction • Meeting an 80% cut of greenhouse gases by 2050

  5. What is the One in Five Challenge? A guided programme and award scheme to help business and government to cut 20% of flights within five years • Reduces reliance on business flights by encouraging culture of virtual meetings • Encourages businesses to seek greener alternatives to flying • Independently audited scheme • Sets annual flight reduction targets • Helps change business travel behaviour • Demonstrates that companies can remain competitive while reducing their flying
