Private aviation in transition towards more sustainability
The world of business aviation is ripe for innovation and technology. This industry offers solutions to make travel more flexible and efficient.
Recently, private airlines have embarked on an awareness-raising process and put in place real CSR strategies in order to reduce their ecological impact and develop corporate social responsibility. This notably involves offsetting carbon emissions.
How to change mentalities and take effective measures in the world of business aviation? Isn’t the use of private jets contrary to the preservation of the planet?
Compensation: a first step in raising awareness
Some airlines have understood this and are now committed to offsetting their CO2 emissions on flights. The investments made can represent several million euros and they make it possible to finance projects for planting trees, energy transition or even biodiversity conservation. There is a lot of good news coming out of the aviation industry, with most industry leaders continuing to stress that climate action is a priority, alongside economic recovery.
Last year at the Air Transport Group World Sustainable Aviation Forum, an example was given. One of the missions of the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) is to foster responsible and sustainable growth in business aviation and to strengthen its competitiveness. A green label called STARS (Standards & Training for Aviation Responsibility and Sustainability) will be included in the IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) certification of operators. This will raise awareness, reward sustainability efforts and help customers make responsible choices in the management of their business aircraft. Likewise, aircraft manufacturers, who collect data for their maintenance programs, are considering including carbon offsets in these programs.
Many customers, individuals or businesses, would be delighted to be able to offset their emissions so easily. All of these initiatives can make a significant contribution to making the future of business aviation cleaner. The current crisis demands massive innovation, green and clean business aviation is certainly the best way to turn the current challenge into an opportunity.
