Finland's Blue1 receives ISO 14001 environmental management certification
Thu 28 Jan 2010 – Finnish airline Blue1 has become one of the first Nordic network carriers to receive an ISO 14001 certificate for its environmental management system. The certification enables the guidance and development of Blue1’s environmental procedures and helps to document and demonstrate the achievement of environmental targets. Auditing and certification was carried out by Bureau Veritas Certification Finland. Through a commitment to achieving challenging environmental objectives, the airline is focusing on reducing its CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020, as compared to 2007 levels.
The airline’s main emphasis is on executing three environmental programmes in flight, cabin and technical operations, covering carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions, aircraft noise, unsorted in-flight waste and hazardous chemicals.
Blue1 said it aims to create responsible and sustainable traffic growth by constantly reducing the environmental impact of its operations.
With a fleet of 13 aircraft, Blue1 is part of the SAS Group.
