Evaluation and risk assessment of KLM’s climate plan.

Project: Research

Project Details


KLM published a climate plan (2023), which describes how the airline wants to reach its science-base targets for carbon intensity as developed by SBTi. The research question is "how does the KLM climate plan realistically relate to the emission reduction targets of a general 1.5°C climate scenario, Dutch policy, principles of climate justice, and legal climate obligations?" It is important that airline climate plans lead to a societal just reduction of emissions. The research is a first to apply principles of 'climate justice' to an airline. It will provide insights and facts for the societal and political discussions about sustainable aviation development.
