Airservices provides safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible air traffic management and related services to the aviation industry. Safety is our paramount priority.
We want to support the growth of the aviation industry whilst minimising its impact, and our own, on the environment, and to do this, we need to focus on environmental sustainability.
Our Environment Strategy 2014-2019 is our vision and commitment to achieve excellence in environmental management, striving to have a neutral impact on the environment resulting from our activities whilst removing, as much as possible, constraints on aircraft operations.
To ensure the delivery of the Environment Strategy, we produce an annual Environment Action Plan, which describes the progress of various key initiatives and activities we undertake.
Projects we have already implemented to help us reduce the aviation industry’s environmental impact include:
- predicting and managing aircraft delays
- continuous descent approaches
- Smart Tracking
