Air Canada named as ATW's Eco-Airline of the Year for 2018
Feb 2018 - Industry magazine Air Transport World has named Air Canada as 2018 Eco-Airline of the Year among its annual airline industry awards. The judges cited the carrier's commitment to emissions reductions through supporting the development of alternative fuels and its numerous green programmes and partnerships, including being the first airline in the world to voluntarily join the World Bank's IMF Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition. "Air Canada has made sustainability central to its decision-making and business processes, and this includes acting responsibly with respect to the environment," said the airline's CEO Calin Rovinescu. "This award will further spur us on to the goals we have set for ourselves to continually improve our environmental performance." Its corporate sustainability report was recently named best in the transportation category by The Finance and Sustainability Initiative in its annual competition.
