How can we help?
Our vision is to make the Emirates Group an environmental leader in the aviation and travel industries. Our goals make sustainability and eco-efficiency the cornerstones of all Group operations - both in the air, and on the ground.
Reducing Cargo Emissions
In the air and on the ground, the Emirates Group is committed to acting sustainably in the interests of our customers, our business, the natural environment and the over 150 destinations we serve worldwide.
As an airline, our biggest impact on the environment is the aircraft we fly, and how we fly them. Our emissions are more than 25 per cent lower than the IATA global fleet average, thanks to a young fleet of aircraft averaging just over six years and an average fuel burn of 4.12 litres for every 100 passenger kilometres - better than most modern small cars. With our new A380s and our green workhorse, the Boeing 777, we will continue to substantially reduce fuel consumption and emissions for all Emirates customers.
On long-haul flights, aircraft capacity is better used. With more efficient load factors, there is a drop in environmental impact and CO2 emissions.
But that's not all. We ensure our environmental performance is always improving by the adoption of higher standards in fuel burn, onboard weight reduction, procurement, resource consumption and recycling. On the ground, this means more efficient use of energy and water. All of us can look for ways to be more sustainable and eco-efficient. Let's embrace this important challenge together.
