Menzies Aviation is partnering with profit with purpose environmental and social impact company ClimateCare to support socially responsible projects that cut carbon.

ClimateCare has expertise in climate and sustainable development and was selected by the ground handler to further its Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments.

The partnership is anticipated to enable Menzies to compensate unavoidable carbon emissions with a portfolio of socially responsible projects as the company works towards becoming carbon neutral by 2033, its 200th anniversary.

Menzies is supporting three projects: providing clean cookstoves in Bangladesh, afforestation initiatives in Mexico and rainforest protection measures in Indonesia.

These projects align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals that Menzies has committed to advance as a signatory of the UN Global Compact.

Menzies is focused on removing emissions from its operations wherever possible. Through supporting ClimateCare projects, Menzies said it has been able to compensate for 43,000 tonnes of its 2021 global scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions, which equates to 48% of its global Co2e emissions.

The partnership with ClimateCare follows the launch of Menzies’ All In plan for a fair and sustainable future, which is driving forward collaboration with customers and partners as well as Menzies’ own local and global initiatives, such as sustainable aviation fuel programmes, switching to electric GSE and addressing the gender balance with industry-leading diversity targets.

Katy Reid, head of sustainability & corporate responsibility, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are delighted to partner with ClimateCare to deepen our ESG commitments and progress our All In plan for a fair and sustainable future.”

Last month, Menzies recommended to shareholders a takeover offer from Agility subsidiary National Aviation Services (NAS) that values the company at £571m.
