Investing in the Future to Shrink the Green Premium

Sponsored by Boeing & United



ISTAT invites you to join us for the second annual ISTAT Sustainability Symposium, a half-day immersive experience featuring lively conversations that will push the ESG agenda forward. Bringing together industry stakeholders, including manufacturers, investors, banks, leasing companies and airlines, we will provide the ideal opportunity for participants to explore areas of common ground while also challenging each other to set goals and affirm accountability. With this event, we highlight the investments needed, explore the solutions that will get us there and advance the commitments that will drive the industry's transformation. In May 2022, more than 400 industry professionals gathered for a dynamic conversation on this important topic. Join us this year for another opportunity to further the discussion.
