Aviation Policy: A New Approach Path – advisory report

Aviation enjoys an exceptional position in Dutch national policy, which holds other mobility sectors or industries more accountable for their impact on the living environment than it does aviation. Aviation growth is increasingly at odds with the Netherlands’ climate objectives and a healthy and pleasant living environment, something that calls for a reconsideration of this exceptional position. This is the conclusion reached by the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli) in its advisory report Aviation Policy: A New Approach Path presented to the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management on 18 April 2019.
