World Environment Day: Emirates Makes Positive Difference to the Environment

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Emirates is highlighting its commitment to the continuous development of environmentally-responsible work practices and eco-efficient operations.

As part of its efforts to making a positive difference to the environment, Emirates has introduced a number of initiatives to reduce its impact on it, as well as to help conserve endangered wildlife and habitats.

A major part of its commitment to being an environmentally responsible airline, is its ongoing investment in a young and modern fleet, that is fuel efficient. Today, the airline operates one of the youngest fleets in the sky, with an average fleet age of 5.7 years.

The world’s largest international airline has been using an aircraft dry wash technique to clean its fleet of 260 aircraft, something that reduces the airplanes’ fuel consumption because of less accumulation of dirt. With this innovative technique, Emirates saves over 11 million liters of water every year, which is particularly important in a desert environment such as Dubai.

Its eco-friendly strategy also includes implementation of recycling and waste reduction initiatives. After flights arrive in Dubai, Emirates Flight Catering separates recyclable items from aircraft galley waste wherever possible, collecting items including glass and plastic bottles, aluminium cans and aluminium foil.

Onboard its long-haul flights, 28 recycled plastic bottles make up the warm fleece blanket provided to customers in Economy Class. According to Emirates’ estimations, by the end of 2019, the ecoTHREAD blankets would have prevented 88 million plastic bottles from wastefully entering landfill, equivalent to the weight of 44 Airbus A380 aircraft - this is the largest on board sustainable blanket program in the airline industry.

In parallel, Emirates sponsors conservation-based initiatives and properties like Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, while taking a strong stance against the illegal trade in wildlife.

Towards the end of the year, the airline will release its next Emirates Group Environmental Report, which highlights its activities and progress in its commitment to be an environmentally responsible airline. Current reports are available on www.emirates.com
