Menzies Aviation will formalise this industry-leading carbon neutrality commitment by becoming a signatory to the UN Global Compact in 2021, which supports the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In order to reach carbon neutrality Menzies will focus on investing in electric ground support equipment (GSE), reducing emissions through identifying operational efficiencies and balancing remaining emissions with carbon offsetting initiatives. 

Alongside investment in new equipment, Menzies will support teams with implementing processes to make zero fuel spills a daily target throughout the company as well as local initiatives to reduce energy use and lessen environmental impacts.

 Philipp Joeinig, CEO & Chairman of Menzies Aviation said: “As flight volumes recover we see an opportunity to rebuild the aviation industry to be more sustainable, and we will be taking advantage of this to promote greener operations across our entire business.

“With our Sustainability Strategy and Programme now in place, we have clearly defined targets and supporting action plans to help realise them, however it is critical that we build relationships across the aviation ecosystem, from trade bodies to suppliers, to ensure that we can collectively remove barriers to green innovation and adoption.”
