FTE’s Earth Day call for action – it’s time to get serious about sustainability in air transport

In this recent article, FTE highlighted that sustainability in the air transport industry is rightly growing in importance as we plan for a greener and more resilient future. However, we must evolve discussions beyond next-generation aircraft, offset programmes and biofuel initiatives, and look at how every aspect of the industry can play an invaluable role in reducing the carbon footprint around the world.

At the upcoming FTE APEX Virtual Expo 2021, themed “Relaunching Global Air Transport“, we will place a huge focus on championing great leadership in this realm, provide compelling case studies that every organisation in the sector can learn from, and inspire the next steps in driving this industry effort, which everyone must participate in.


Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to hear from United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby on the carrier’s commitment to being 100% green, its new sustainability alliance, the importance of carbon sequestration, and how his big hope for his legacy in the role is to have a lasting impact on changing the global conversation to find real solutions to resolving the defining issue of our generation. Delegates can also learn exactly how Swedavia has achieved the world-first of Net Zero CO2 operations across its 10 airports, and how Royal Schiphol Group is investing heavily in autonomous vehicles in support of its vision to operate “the most sustainable airports in the world” by 2050. We will also look into eco-friendly materials and best practices used in the aircraft cabin, all the way through to how baggage processes and IT infrastructure can be game changers too.

Sustainability is an organisation-wide imperative for all aviation businesses, and we all need to play our part. We encourage you to use FTE APEX Virtual Expo to help shape your contribution to this global effort and think of Earth Day 2021 as the catalyst for a new way of thinking.
