The 3rd ASEAN Sustainability Forum, was held on 17 May 2023 on the sidelines of the ASEAN Air Transport Working Group’s meeting in Singapore. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore’s Chief Sustainability Officer Daniel Ng chaired the forum with speakers from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Federal Aviation Administration, European Union Aviation Safety Agency, Airbus, Singapore Airlines, and Malaysia Aviation Group. AAIS was privileged to support the event and facilitate industry attendance both in-person and online.

Participants learnt about how the various regulators were facilitating SAF adoption, including policymaking and planning for decarbonisation (e.g. SAF mandates and incentives), supply chain (e.g. pilot and “experimental” projects) and infrastructure. Airbus’ Asia Pacific President, Anand Stanley, spoke of the company’s efforts to address sustainability across the three ‘scopes’ and how it was developing aircraft technologies for the future. Chen Fook Ping (Singapore Airlines) and Philip See (Malaysia Aviation Group) shared the airline perspective on achieving net zero.

We look forward to the next Sustainability Forum in Oct 2023.
