TIACA has revealed the three finalists of its first ever Sustainability Award, which was established to recognise and reward organisations that are addressing CO2 emissions, waste reduction, recycling, weight reduction for ULDs and packaging, humanitarian aid, staff wellbeing and retention and animal welfare.

The nominees are:

  • M&G Packaging Corp with BioNatur Plastics for the Air Cargo Industry
    100% landfill-biodegradable plastic and stretch wrap to reduce single-use plastic in air cargo.
  • Nallian with an Open Ecosystem of Collaborative Applications for Air Cargo
    An open data sharing platform and apps, eliminating waste in the processes and driving digital integration, efficiency and visibility amongst the business partners at air cargo hubs.
  • Wings for Aid Foundation with its delivery box
    A self-landing cardboard delivery box to bridge the last mile to people in need as a result of humanitarian crises.

The projects were submitted to an independent jury comprising of five judges: Steven Polmans, chairman of TIACA’s Board and director cargo & logistics at Brussels Airport Company; Arnaud Lambert, chief executive of CHAMP Cargosystems; Lilian Tan, vice president, Strategic Aviation Solutions International; Susy Schöneberg, head of Flexport.org; Deniz Daştan, quality management and development manager at Turkish Airlines.

Polmans commented: “Having the opportunity for the first time to organise this award is a big step in terms of who we, as TIACA, want to be and how we want to be seen by the industry. Demonstrating the economic benefits of doing good for people, society and environment will inspire many of us.”

Lambert, added: “I have clearly been impressed by the quality and the variety of the applications. There was a good mix between projects from established companies and startups.”
