No Limits: Innovation Toward a Decarbonized Aviation Industry

As practitioners of disruptive innovation through our Intellectual Anarchy discipline, Oceanit forges partnerships with some of the most innovative organizations and thinkers in the world – covering a wide range of industries — from medicine and aerospace, to energy and cosmetics.   All share the (un)common thread of innovation, a thread that runs through intelligence, risk-taking, and perseverance, which informs our philosophical foundation of new breakthroughs and discoveries. Through our No Limits speaker series, Oceanit is delighted to share fascinating stories from people who move beyond what’s thinkable, sometimes what’s considered impossible – until it’s not.

Oceanit is honored to welcome Aaron Robinson, Senior Manager of Environmental Sustainability at United Airlines, as our new No Limits speaker. No Limits™ at Oceanit is a speaker series designed to stretch our imaginations and examine how vision and risk stimulate discovery and achievement. We aspire to host the most interesting thinkers in science, engineering, business, and community to share their creative genius and innovative mindsets on problem solving – beyond the limits of traditional thinking.

The aviation industry is a highly visible emitter of carbon, accounting for approximately 2.5% of global CO2 emissions. Ironically, the very industry that has brought enormous prosperity to places like Hawaii since the early days of trans-pacific flight, is now at risk of negatively impacting the same communities via the unintended consequence of climate impact and sea level rise.  United has committed to being 100% green by 2050 – reducing their greenhouse gas emissions by 100%, without relying on offsets. To accomplish this lofty goal, United is embracing innovations in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), carbon capture and sequestration technologies, alternatively-powered aircraft, and more. The Eco-Skies program and its Eco-Skies Alliance, a first-of-its-kind program, serve that goal by supporting innovation and involving global partners to help make sustainable aviation not just a reality, but the new normal. We are happy to welcome Aaron Robinson, United’s champion for the Eco-Skies vision, as our No Limits speaker on July 29th, 2021.
