IBAC, EBAA Plan New Sustainability Initiative

 - December 9, 2019, 10:33 AM

A new sustainability initiative between One Young World, the European Business Aviation Association, and the International Business Aviation Council will be the focus of a webinar tomorrow. Dubbed Standards & Training for Aviation Responsibility and Sustainability (STARS), the webinar is part of a program that involves development of a new, three-tiered sustainability label and guidance that will be integrated into existing IS-BAO and IS-BAH programs.

“The IBAC board recently accepted the proposed STARS integration into IS-BAO and IS-BAH Standards,” IBAC director of environment Bruce Parry told AIN. “As the STARS development continues, the process of including sustainability guidance into these voluntary IS-BAO and IS-BAH standards will begin once the terms of reference are defined.”

STARS aims to support the business aviation industry through increased awareness of social and environmental issues that can be addressed by business aviation through the creation of partnerships, guidance, and best practices. Similar webinars are also planned for next month and in February.
