Air Partner has announced a new sustainability strategy that includes appointing an executive leader, using carbon offsets, and reviewing additional sustainability efforts for implementation.
Specifically, the UK-based aviation services provider recently appointed Greg Charman as environmental, social, and governance manager to oversee its sustainability initiatives, including staff development and carbon reduction programs. The company also will be encouraging stakeholders to tap into its partnerships with Raleigh International and Climate Care, the latter of which will calculate carbon emissions from flights and offset those by adding a cost directly to the price of a flight.
Air Partner also will host its first tree-planting activity in December, where it expects to plant hundreds of trees in East Sussex. Other sustainability practices Air Partner plans to implement are: working to make all of its offices paperless by 2022 and increasing their use of renewable energy; encouraging online training courses for staff; reviewing its use of sustainable aviation fuel; and developing a sustainable procurement policy.
“We are committed to acting responsibly with our people, clients, and partners to deliver positive change through our evolving sustainability strategy,” said Air Partner CEO Mark Briffa.
