The GHI Big Debate Webinar - 3 September

Sustainability in Aviation

Sustainability is one of the hot topics in the aviation industry and society at large with high profile climate protests breaking out across the world in the past year. Governments, airports, and airlines have big plans and requirements for future sustainable operations - including what ground handlers need to live up to.

Many countries even have a requirement for inclusion of sustainability development in companies’ annual reports. How can manufacturers best help ground handlers - both in terms of their own business and operations, but also in meeting the sustainability demands of their customers?

The session will also explore the latest green technologies, airport infrastructure to support sustainability and how handlers market their sustainability credentials to win new airline customers. 

Panellists will include contributors from leading GSE manufacturers, airlines, GSPs and airport operators.
