Loganair takes home the 2023 Sir Michael Marshall Sustainability in Aviation Award
The Air Charter Association’s (ACA) prestigious Air Charter Excellence Awards and Gala Dinner took place last week, with a wide range of businesses from across the industry recognised and awarded for excellence.
Cambridge City Airport Director Kevan Craske was on hand to present the coveted Sir Michael Marshall Sustainability in Aviation Award, which went to Loganair for its industry-leading GreenSkies initiative.
Named posthumously in honour of the late Sir Michael Marshall, the award is sponsored by Cambridge City Airport and recognises the work of individuals and organisations to raise awareness of sustainability and innovation in aviation.
Launched in October 2021, GreenSkies aims to manage and mitigate the environmental impact of flying, which is crucial to addressing and reducing emissions across the entire transport industry. Loganair was the first UK regional airline to introduce such an ambitious programme.
Kevan Craske commented, “I’m delighted to present the Sir Michael Marshall award to Loganair for their investment in carbon offsetting projects all over the world.
“Their Wind Power Project in villages in India has led to the reduction of just under 130,000 tonnes in annual emissions, while their Floresta Verde REDD+ Project has protected over 53,000 hectares of the Eastern Amazon.”
At the same time, the airline is tackling the long-term goal of building sustainability into its fleet, recently embarking on live trials on developmental aircraft powered by hydrogen and renewable electricity.”
