Introducing our sustainability strategy

This is our plan to make a positive difference in a changing world for our people, communities and the planet. It takes us towards our 200th anniversary in 2033 and a fairer greener world.

It’s at the heart of our purpose to provide safe and trusted aviation services, now and for the future. We’ll work closely with our industry partners, customers and suppliers to get to where we need to go.

We’ll engage and inspire our people because we believe everyone can make a positive difference. From simple local actions to big global initiatives and everything in between.

The Environment

With global aviation responsible for around 2% of global carbon emissions human produced, we know it’s important that the ground services industry play its part in protecting the planet for the future.

We have a long term plan to protect the environment and support the climate.

We commit to:

  • To be carbon neutral before our 200th birthday in 2033
  • Invest in measurement, reporting and technology to make zero aviation fuel spills our daily target throughout the business
  • Support the climate change agenda through an environmental management system and becoming a signatory to the UN Global compact

People

With colleagues working and living in 34 countries on six continents, we have a big opportunity to help create a future where equality, inclusion and fairness are experienced by all.

We will offer training and development opportunities to all colleagues and champion a diverse workforce where everyone can thrive. We will also focus on both mental and physical wellbeing of all our people.

We commit to:

  • Optimise operational training to create the same high standards across our network
  • Increase development opportunities for our management team
  • Improve our engagement with our workforce especially those who are hard to reach
  • Build a diverse and balanced workforce and leadership team

Safety

We have 23,000 committed and professional colleagues around the world working in busy airports which can be hazardous if the correct safety procedures are not followed every minute of every hour. Our top priority is to ensure they return home safely at the end of every day.

We commit to:

  • Improve reporting capability and training to ensure we target zero injuries every hour of every day
  • Invest in technology and engage our employees to target zero damage to aircraft always
  • Promote an effective and just safety culture through our MORSE code and charter.

Communities

With operations and colleagues working in more than 200 locations across the globe, we recognise the opportunity our global reach brings to contribute to the lives of all those who live in our local communities.

We commit to:

  • Supporting local & global supply chains and ensuring ethical business practices
  • Running local recruitment initiatives
  • Offering support to national and local charities
  • Encouraging our teams to support local initiatives
