Emirates has $150,000 on offer for environment project

Posted 16 April 2013 · Add Comment

Emirates Airlines takes an innovative approach to the environment – from recycling tonnes of obsolete aircraft chinaware into an oyster bed in Dubai, to applying new air traffic management practices around its network that reduce fuel burn and carbon dioxide emissions, to conserving habitats in Dubai and Australia.

Now the carrier wants to take environmental innovation even further, by supporting existing not-for-profit organisations with an environmental or conservation project with clear environmental benefits.

This is the first time Emirates has run such an initiative and the successful proposal/proposals will receive a one-time award of up to $150,000.

Jenny Johnstone, senior analyst in Emirates Airlines public, industry, international and environmental affairs department said: “The money has been raised through the our internal recycling programmes. Recycling is a growing part of the culture at Emirates, with our recycling programmes running for more than four years in Dubai, processing more than 5 million kilograms per annum.

 “Emirates’ ‘A Greener Tomorrow’ initiative is open to any established not-for-profit environmental or conservation organisation. The organisations applying must have transparent governance and be able to provide supporting evidence of such standards during the application process.”
