Menzies Aviation joins decarbonisation alliance
20 / 07 / 2022
Global aviation logistics specialist Menzies Aviation has joined the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP), an alliance of climate leaders focused on decarbonising some of the world’s highest-emitting industries.
In collaboration with the Clean Skies for Tomorrow coalition, the MPP has published a new Aviation Transition Strategy that has been endorsed by over 60 aviation leaders, setting out a global strategy to achieve net-zero aviation by 2050.
The new report, “Making Net-Zero Aviation possible: An industry-backed, 1.5°C aligned Transition Strategy”, provides a series of actionable steps to be taken over the next decade to secure a transition towards carbon-neutral flying and deliver the goals of the Paris Agreement. Actions include drastically improving fuel efficiency gains of aircraft, the rapid roll out of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and market entry of hydrogen, battery-electric or hybrid powered aircraft.
Menzies, which provides ground, fuel and air cargo services, is the first aviation services business to sign the global strategy, building on the company’s commitment to its “All In” sustainability strategy. Announced last year, All In encompasses Menzies’ plan for making a positive difference to guarantee a fair and sustainable future, notably its ambition to be carbon-neutral by 2033
John Geddes, corporate affairs director, Menzies Aviation, said: “This latest strategy from the Mission Possible Partnership underlines the importance of key players in the aviation industry working together to achieve net-zero. I’m proud that Menzies is involved in this latest effort and look forward to seeing the impact collective action can have to build a more sustainable future.”
