Six airlines achieve first stage assessment in IATA's new airline environmental management programme
Six airlines are the first to be certified under IATA’s Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) programme, a new voluntary evaluation system designed to independently assess and improve the environmental management of an airline. All six – Finnair, South African Airways, LAN, LAN Cargo, Malaysia and Kenya Airways – achieved Stage 1 status. The aim of the programme is to set common environmental standards based on recognised environmental management system (EMS) principles, such as ISO 14001, and have been developed by a joint team of environmental consultants and airlines. Airline assessments are undertaken by independently accredited Environmental Assessment Organisations that have demonstrated competencies in EMS auditing.
