Air Canada’s leadership position in the Canadian industry

Already, Air Canada is an established climate leader in Canadian industry.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Since 1990, the airline has improved its fuel efficiency by 43 per cent, invested $12 billion in more environmentally friendly aircraft, participated in developing a world carbon-pricing mechanism for the industry, supported alternative-fuel and climate research and pioneered waste reduction and recycling programs – efforts that were recognized globally when Air Transport World named Air Canada Eco-Airline of the Year in 2018. Air Canada intends to achieve its goal through a four-pillar approach based on: fleet modernization and operating efficiencies; innovation with new technologies, including electrification and other potential power sources such as hydrogen; the development of sustainable aviation fuels, to which Air Canada has committed $50 million; and carbon offset and compensation strategies.

To ensure accountability, Air Canada has set interim goals for 2030 to achieve net reductions in greenhouse gases of 20 per cent from flight operations and 30 per cent from ground operations, using 2019 as a baseline.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
