Andreas Hardeman, IATA’s manager of aviation environment, emailed us some information today about IATA’s 2007 environmental strategy, which places more emphasis on “identifying sustainable solutions for the longer term, including emissions trading, alternative fuels and air traffic management improvements.”
IATA is offering two aviation environmental training courses in 2007: one in Khartoum, Sudan, in January, and the other in Geneva in November. It also launched an Aviation Environmental Best Practices Database in 2005 that has received more than 100 entries, said Hardeman. He said the best practices include aircraft noise and emissions, energy consumption, soil and water, waste, conservation and social development.
