DUBAI, UAE, 24th July 2008 – On the eve of taking delivery of its first eco-efficient Airbus A380, Emirates today unveiled a series of new initiatives to further improve the environmental performance of its operations worldwide. The programme, branded Environment, includes the adoption of a new environmental policy for the Emirates Group; a global staff awareness campaign; and internal goals to reduce energy consumption and waste, as well as increase recycling and training.

Emirates has also launched a new section on its website that features information on the Group’s management of environmental issues.

Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines takes a long-term view of the development of its air transportation and related businesses. This includes broader responsibilities to the worldwide communities the Airline serves, and recognition that its operations are sustainable and minimise the impact on the environment.

Singapore Airlines takes pride in operating a fleet of aircraft that is among the youngest and most fuel-efficient in the skies. The Airline is the first to operate the Airbus380; the cleanest and greenest aircraft in operation today. Its fuel burn is up to 20% less than a Boeing747 on a seat-mile basis, and the carbon dioxide emissions per customer are the lowest of any aircraft. The A380 is also quieter, both inside and outside the cabin.

Singapore Airlines will continue to be an early adopter of new technology, so as to improve the fuel efficiency of its fleet, lower noise levels and minimise the amount of emissions released

Information on our key environmental activities and performance is published in the Singapore Airlines Environmental Report 2007-08. The Report includes data on aircraft emissions, electricity and water consumption, and also lists various green activities such as waste minimisation and efficient use of resources.

Qatar Airways

During an ITB Berlin conference panel discussion on climate change, Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker spoke of the airline’s environmental drive – in particular, its move towards using gas-to-fuel (liquefied gas) technology to power its aircraft in the future. Such a move would, he said, significantly reduce carbon emissions and create greater operational efficiency. Then went on to comment on the progress and achievements being made with the new Doha International Airport, ”We have worked closely with the Supreme Council for the Environment and Natural Resources to ensure the design does not cause unnecessary damage to the environment. We have also put together a comprehensive environmental monitoring plan to ensure that all the contractors work in an environmentally friendly manner.”
