British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that current global targets around sustainable aviation fuel were "pathetic" and that the world could do more, as he announced plans to drive the adoption of green technology globally.
While admitting the challenge was a "tough nut to crack", he said “guilt free aviation” was possible, citing a joint deal with billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates to spend £400 million (€470 million) on the problems of low-carbon aviation, Reuters reported.
"The target at the moment is to get to 10% sustainable aviation fuel for the whole world by 2030. How pathetic is that? We can do better than that, folks," he told delegates at the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow.

In his address to an event aimed at rallying more action on green technology, the COP26 host urged participants, including US President Joe Biden, the Duke of Edinburgh and Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, that “we should be far, far more ambitious,” after admitting that aviation was a “tough nut to crack”.
