The aviation industry has taken a number of important steps to help protect the environment. During ALTA’s 2007 Airline Leaders Forum in Cancun, ALTA’s Executive Committee agreed to coordinate a strategy and plan to help improve our carbon footprint and other environmental practices in the region. This plan included the creation of the ALTA Environmental Committee. The objective of this group is to work together with governments, airport authorities, IATA, and local BARs among other key players in the industry in order to achieve common goals we have set as an industry.
This group also supports all members by giving access to the best practices in the industry, including access to experts and other tools aimed at giving important results and saving opportunities for airlines.
