Four Links to Make You Think: April 26th - 30th

Google Maps is incorporating ways for you to drive to pollute less, conversations in the cockpit, drastic cuts in carbon emissions in the UK and aviation's post Covid-19 evolution for the week of April 26th through April 30th.

At Signol, we’re constantly looking at products, initiatives, and news that inspire and move us to keep striving to be the best company we possibly can be. We used to get some of that information from meeting new customers, peers at Founders Factory, and networking - but since Covid-19, we’re primarily sharing internally.

To keep up the spirit of sharing findings we’re passionate about, we’ve decided to run a series called Four Links To Make You Think weekly through the summer. Feel free to respond with your own findings, comments, or share away! We’re looking forward to seeing all of your thoughts and debate - just like we do internally.

Hitting the targets would require more electric cars, low-carbon heating, renewable electricity, and, for many, cutting down on meat and dairy. For the first time, climate law will be extended to cover international aviation and shipping.”

When aviation rises again, how will it be different?

Airlines are changing dramatically under the pressure of Covid-19 restrictions, and it’s difficult to say just how much damage has actually been done long term. McKinsey predicts a pathway to recovery through leisure travel, government regulations, revisiting marginal gains through operational changes, and rising prices.
