Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has published its first sustainability report, showing how its technology investment is aiding decarbonisation.

The inaugural sustainability report from the global lessor of freighter aircraft highlights progress in the company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices and initiatives, and covers achievements in key focus areas since 2020.

The report found that technology implemented on the company’s aircraft allows the tracking and reduction of fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

New flight planning software uses real-time weather conditions to provide the company’s flight crews with optimal flight altitudes and speeds, resulting in significant fuel and emissions savings, said the report.

It also noted that energy efficient HVAC equipment and LED light fixtures in the company’s aircraft hangars and offices has improved light quality and safety while materially reducing annual facility operating costs and energy consumption.

“ATSG is pleased to share this inaugural Sustainability Report in order to provide greater transparency with respect to our ESG efforts and initiatives,” stated ATSG president and chief executive officer Rich Corrado.

 “This report details our ongoing efforts to reduce the amount of fuel per operating hour that we use in our airline operations, reduce our level of greenhouse gas emissions, and pursue other initiatives to mitigate our impact on the environment and improve the lives of those around us.”
