SASIG is a group of Local Authorities from across the country, all with an interest in strategic aviation issues. SASIG works to ensure that UK aviation policy is implemented in a manner that reconciles economic, social and environmental issues.
SASIG’s objectives are:
· to promote the need for long-term, sustainable aviation policies that lead to a reduction in the environmental impact of aviation whilst securing appropriate social and economic benefits;
· to increase understanding of the local and global impacts of aviation on the environment and communities;
· to identify and promote the changes needed to move towards sustainable aviation practices within the industry and Government; and
· to work with other organisations and the Government on the formulation of policy advice.
