ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

Environmental management is part of our focus on Quality, Health, Safety and the Environment. As part of our commitment we are currently refining our environmental management system to ensure compliance with ISO 14001:2015.

Environmental care is an integral part of our planning and decision-making processes. We are committed to continuously reducing the environmental impact of our operations - both in the management of our facilities and in the natural resources we rely on. One of our most prominent initiatives is our commitment to increase the share of electrically powered Ground Support Equipment (eGSE) in our fleet to at least 50 percent by 2025. We work on preventing pollution, encourage proper waste handling and disposal, minimize waste generation, and recycle and reuse waste materials wherever feasible.

As part of our commitment we are currently refining our environmental management system to ensure compliance with ISO 14001:2015 and expand it to cover all business areas. Completion is scheduled for 2022. The new system will enable us to improve our internal and external reporting, and significantly increase our contribution to environmentally responsible operations at the airports we serve.

We maintain an open dialogue with our customers and employees, as well as with airports, in an effort to understand their needs and define compatible goals. As an active member of the ISAGO Council, we are helping to shape an environmentally compatible and socially responsible future for aviation in general, and for ground handling in particular.
Environmental care

promoting accountability

All the policies and regulations aside, environmental care is, more than anything, the personal responsibility of every employee. While we meet all the requirements of the Swissport Management System and relevant policies and procedures, we are aware of the importance of the individual accountability. Acting in a professional, safe and environmentally responsible manner is a shared responsibility.

Mitigating our IMPACT

going electric

We have identified three main drivers for Swissport’s environmental impact: operational, managerial and behavioral. The greatest and most influenceable impact can be found in our Ground Support Equipment (GSE) area. We strive to deploy electrically powered and hybrid GSE (eGSE) wherever possible. eGSE decreases toxic exhaust emissions and reduces our carbon footprint, and it also leads to significant fuel cost savings.
