In order to manage the different types of waste generated by our operations, we have set up tailored approaches to each one of them.
Reducing Hazardous Waste
Hazardous chemicals are used in our ongoing operations, such as in fire extinguishing equipment or paints. In order to reduce the production of hazardous wastes, we continue to explore the introduction of more sustainable products or processes into our operation. We also provide training and updates to staff on the handling procedures for the use and disposal of chemicals, equipment and waste.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Inflight
Onboard, we focus our efforts on sorting and reusing or recycling newspapers, inflight magazines, plastic and aluminum beverage containers and cutlery. We also request that our caterers operate similar recycling systems in their operations where possible.
We also have been examining ways to streamline meals equipment use and reduce leftover food through a careful process of planning, forecasting and consultation with passengers and cabin crew.
