A three-track environmental policy approach

In order to pay due and full regard to all the various aspects of environmental management, skyguide has adopted a three-track policy approach:

  • First, the company is pursuing a consistent strategy of enhancing the services it provides. The more punctual flight operations are and the more direct the routes flown, the better will be the eco-credentials of the customers concerned. In this respect, too, sustainability is an integral part of skyguide's corporate strategy.
  • Secondly, skyguide is taking actions to reduce its own environmental impact. And it is developing its own Environmental Management System to do so.
  • Thirdly, skyguide pursues a procurement policy that makes their environmental credentials a criterion in its choice of suppliers.

Measurement system being developed

Skyguide aims to use its new Environmental Management System to obtain reliable data on its use of natural resources. Developing an appropriate facility for measuring key environmental indicators will take several years. But the first statements can already be made that can offer further guidance on the course currently adopted. Utlimately, skyguide aims to limit and reduce its consumption of the resources concerned.
