dnata, a leading global air and travel services provider, announced that it would invest $100 million in green operations in the next two years to further enhance environmental efficiency across its global network.
The company’s ongoing investment in infrastructure, equipment and process improvement will support it to achieve its strategic objectives and reduce its carbon footprint by 20 per cent by 2024, and by 50 per cent by 2030.
Steve Allen, CEO of dnata Group, said, “We’ve been making great progress on reducing our carbon footprint, minimising waste and reducing energy and water consumption across our operations. We will further increase our investments and efforts in strong cooperation with our partners to achieve our targets and preserve the environment for current and future generations.”
In recent years dnata has significantly invested in advanced technologies to optimise resources and improve operational efficiency across its facilities.
It installed renewable energy features, such as solar panels, heat recovery units and electric vehicle charging, at its existing facilities in the UK, Singapore and Ireland. The company will also incorporate carbon reduction initiatives in the construction and operation of its recently announced new cargo centres in The Netherlands and Iraq.
Choosing green options is a prime consideration in dnata’s fleet planning, too.
