The organisation was recognised for finding innovative pollution control solutions and applying best environmental practices, which led to an increase in environmental compliance levels across the airline.  

The Green Industries innovative programme, which was launched in June 2022, is customised based on best international practices in the field of eco-labelling while factoring in the nature of Abu Dhabi’s industrial sector. The programme aims to build joint partnerships and to acknowledge the contributions of industrial facilities in the field of environmental protection.

Facilities receive the label after being recognised for their environmentally friendly performance through an extensive assessment of facility operations and initiatives ensuring best implementation of best environmental practices to ensure protection and sustainable development of the environment.

Mariam Al Qubaisi, Head of Sustainability and Business Excellence, Etihad Airways said: “As the national airline of the UAE, Etihad is determined to lend its full weight to Abu Dhabi’s strategic vision for sustainable development, through research and implementation of all possible solutions to reduce its carbon footprint. The Green Industries Eco-Label is recognition of Etihad’s contribution to sustainability and The Environment Agency’s successful ability to foster the best environmental practices within Abu Dhabi.”
