The NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses is a new sustainability initiative, created to provide FBOs and other aviation businesses a self-certification process for pursuing flexible, cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint.
Jet Aviation met the criteria for recognition as a ‘Green Aviation Business – Tier 2’, which includes adopting recycling programs, installing renewable energy sources, executing paperless systems, implementing a sustainable sourcing/procurement policy, adopting electric operational vehicles, and promoting ride sharing, electric car usage and/or public transport among employees.
“We are committed to providing sustainable choices for our customers and employees across our business,” said Jet Aviation President, David Paddock. “We also recognize that achieving a more sustainable future is not just about the services we provide, but how we provide it and how we operate our physical assets. I am very proud that NATA has recognized our efforts in this area, for example our LEED buildings and recycling programs, and want to thank the team for their dedication to exploring and implementing sustainable solutions.”
“Collaboration and partnership are key to bringing innovative solutions to life,” continued David Best, senior vice president regional operations and GM Americas. “We are dedicated to working together with industry bodies to continue to support a more sustainable future. I am delighted to see this fruitful outcome of our long and successful partnership with NATA, and look forward to further collaboration to come, on this and other key industry initiatives.”
The NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses is a free industry standard designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions increase use of more environmentally friendly energy sources, reduce waste, and encourage sustainability operation-wide.
In addition to supporting sustainable operations across its global FBO network, Jet Aviation also offers permanent physical SAF at three locations: Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Van Nuys, California; and Singapore; and SAF via Book & Claim anywhere in the world. The company also signed the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’ 2030 Ambition Statement earlier this year.
