easyJet Receives IATA Sustainability Accreditation

easyJet has been crowned as the first low-cost carrier in the world with a fully IATA IEnvA certified Environmental Management System.

The airline is committed to improving its overall environmental impact, including waste and carbon emissions, after joining the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign aimed at achieving net-zero carbon emission by 2050 last year. Now, the airline has received stage 2 certification in the globally recognised evaluation system: International Air Transport Association (IATA) Environmental Assessment programme (IEnvA). This comes after the airline’s successful completion of the stage 1 implementation assessment earlier this year.

IEnvA is a voluntary programme helping airlines to successfully manage, monitor, and control their environmental issues by committing them to comply with various environmental obligations to continually improve their performance. easyJet is the first non-IATA member to participate in the process.

Director of Sustainability at easyJet, Jane Ashton, commented: “We view sustainability as a holistic issue at easyJet, which ranges from mitigating our direct carbon emissions from flying to managing the broader impact from our operations.

“I’m really pleased to have achieved this first for a low-cost carrier worldwide, with the full IATA IEnvA accreditation further demonstrating easyJet’s continued commitment to continuously improving our environmental performance.”
