Meyrin GE/Soesterberg – Skyguide, a company active in air traffic control, has received the GreenATM Award from CANSO. With this award, the industry association of air navigation service providers recognizes Skyguide’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in Swiss airspace.
The international industry association of aviation safety organizations (Civil Air Navigation Services Organization, CANSO) has issued the world’s first GreenATM certification to Meyrin-based Skyguide. CANSO thus honors the environmental performance of the Swiss air navigation service provider, according to a media release.
The GreenATM program evaluates a range of issues, from the company’s own environmental footprint to efficiency improvements in airspace management. Air navigation service providers are assessed against five defined levels with comprehensive objectives for each topic. GreenATM thus reportedly provides objective validation of environmental commitment. Skyguide has been placed by CANSO in Level 3 of the environmental accreditation program developed in 2022.
“We are proud that skyguide is the first air navigation service provider to be certified under this new program,” Simon Hocquard, CANSO director general, is quoted as saying in the release. “Achieving Level 3 recognizes Skyguide’s contribution to environmental sustainability and the company’s strong commitment to initiatives that deliver tangible environmental benefits.”
“Building a more sustainable and efficient air navigation service provider is central to Skyguide’s corporate strategy,” said Skyguide CEO Alex Bristol. “Air navigation service providers have an important role to play in decarbonizing the aviation industry. We are pleased to see Skyguide’s contribution recognized and are confident that the GreenATM program will enable further progress.” ce/ww
