Etihad Airways is fully committed to conducting our business in ways which ensure responsible management of the effect we have on our environment. Through the adoption of our environmental policy, our partnership with the Mazdar future energy initiative, and the make-up of our fuel efficient fleet, we are focused on abiding by the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle.
Our partnership with the Masdar future energy initiativeIn March 2009 Etihad signed an agreement Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s multi-faceted future energy initiative, establishing a range of activities to reduce the airline’s carbon footprint through sustainable and energy efficient measures.
Masdar will support the development of carbon management solutions to ensure Etihad’s compliance with the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, which comes into effect for aviation in 2012, as well as support the airline’s voluntary carbon reduction initiatives.
In addition, Masdar will work with Etihad to enhance the airline’s waste management plans and energy saving initiatives.
