Webinar: Greenwashing and false solutions: biofuels, offsets, techno-fixes
Join us to talk about how airlines are greenwashing their activity and how we can counter it. We will cover illusory techno-fixes and offsetting; we will discuss the myth of sustainable aviation fuels and why the promotion of biofuels and waste-derived fuels by the aviation industry is a false climate solution which could lead to more deforestation and land grabs around the world.

We will talk about how international policy and carbon markets contribute to the problems, as well as examining the gender-differentiated impacts of these false solutions.
