NBAA recognizes Sustainable Flight Department Accreditation recipients
The National Business Aviation Association has announced additional inaugural business aviation entities that have achieved the organization’s newly established Sustainable Flight Department Accreditation.
The program, which was launched earlier this year, includes four independent accreditations: flight, ground support, operations and infrastructure. The categories are aimed at recognizing the diversity of business aviation entities and different emissions scopes.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has earned four NBAA Sustainable Flight Department Accreditations. Last month the company was the industry’s first business aircraft OEM to fly on 100% SAF.
NBAA’s accreditation program, which is not limited to flight departments, provides an industry standard for validating leadership in sustainable flight operations. The goal is to promote a culture of sustainability by encouraging companies to think and act critically, and to implement as many sustainability strategies as possible.
The awardees include:
• American Express Corporate Aviation: Flight, Operations
• The Boeing Company, Executive Flight Operations: Flight
• Coca-Cola Company: Flight
• Cox Aviation LLC: Flight
• Dell Technologies Corporate Aviation: Flight
• Dow Aviation: Flight, Operations, Ground Support, Infrastructure
• Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation: Flight, Operations, Ground Support, Infrastructure
• Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company: Operations
NBAA also accredited several other entities that wish to remain anonymous.
“Through programs such as NBAA’s Sustainable Flight Department Accreditation Program, business aviation is taking concrete, measurable steps to address climate change,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “We commend the companies who have worked hard to achieve this accreditation and strive to create a more sustainable future for business aviation.”
