“Finnair has been advocating the creation of a global emission reduction scheme for many years,” says Kati Ihamäki, Director of Corporate Responsibility at Finnair. “We have worked closely together with other industry members towards the implementation of this significant initiative. We are very pleased that this historic milestone has finally been reached.”
The CORSIA agreement is one element in the aviation sector’s actions on climate change. Other environmental improvement measures include the use of modern technology, the adoption of sustainable alternative fuels, efficient operational practices and improvements in infrastructure.
“Climate change mitigation has been an ongoing process for several years at Finnair,” adds Ihamäki. “We are currently completing the modernization of our long-haul fleet with the new Airbus A350, which is the one of the most energy efficient aircraft on the market. In addition, we are also heavily involved in the Helsinki Green Hub project which aims at facilitating the future use of bio fuels at our Helsinki Airport Hub.”
