Finnair has become a certified member of the IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) program.
It is a pioneering program for independent assessment and improvement of the environmental management of airlines. Finnair is part of an airlines test group that takes part in and develops the program.
”Finnair has for a long time been active in reporting environmental issues and we are very eager to share our experiences and expertise in order to develop industry standards,” says Kati Ihamäki, the Vice President of Sustainable Development at Finnair. ”Cooperation is vital in the long run if airline industry is to achieve its long-term goal of carbon neutral air travel and other environmental issues. IEnvA’s ongoing development helps to ensure that all airlines are looking ahead to a future of sustainable development.”
The IEnvA program is based on established environmental standards (such as ISO 14001) that have been developed by environmental specialists together with leading airlines, including Finnair. Both Finnair and other airlines will be evaluated by accredited environmental assessment organisations.
