Air Canada is doing its part for a better tomorrow
We all want a greener, healthier planet and it is something we owe our children and the generations to follow. By taking action today, Air Canada is doing its part for a better tomorrow and Air Canada remains deeply committed to long-term sustainability.
The commitment is to a net zero emissions goal from all global operations by 2050, demonstrating its long-term commitment to advancing climate change sustainability throughout its business. To reach this, Air Canada will leave less through its operations with lighter planes and sourcing alternate fuels, leaving less carbon in the atmosphere, less noise in the communities, and less waste in our land and water by expanding recycling.
A big win for Air Canada and the environment.
Air Canada is proud to have flown away with the Achievement in Sustainability Award on May 8 at the Business Travel Sustainability Awards in New York City.
At Air Canada, we are committed to leave less through our operations-less carbon in our atmosphere and less waste in our land and water. We're working towards an ambitious goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions from all global operations by 2050. In addition, Air Canada completed a recent inaugural Montreal to Amsterdam flight with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner using sustainable aviation fuel. Coinciding with the launch of Air Canada's second route from Amsterdam to Canada, the airline is further advancing initiatives in its Climate Action Plan by expanding its partnership with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) producer Neste in Europe to now incorporate Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ in some of its flights at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Use of SAF could reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80%* over the fuel's life cycle, compared to use of conventional jet fuel. This reduction is calculated based on a full lifecycle assessment.
