OUR PATH TO DECARBONIZATION

At Swissport, we have a 10-year plan for decarbonization, collaborating with our ecosystem to inspire and implement change. Across our workforce of 60,000 people in 45 countries worldwide, we aim to adapt the equipment they use and the way they work to drive our business transformation.

At Swissport, we have a 10-year plan for decarbonization, collaborating with our ecosystem to inspire and implement change. Across our workforce of 60,000 people in 45 countries worldwide, we aim to adapt the equipment they use and the way they work to drive our business transformation.

In 2022, Swissport marked a significant step in emissions reporting, setting an ambitious target to reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions by at least 42% by 2032. Teaming up with ERM, the world’s largest advisory firm dedicated to sustainability, we ensured precise data collection, launching comprehensive reporting that now includes Scope 3 emissions. This achievement enhances our ability to monitor, assess initiatives, and meet reporting obligations.

Building on this achievement, our commitment extends to establishing science-based targets under the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) within the next two years, reinforcing our proactive approach toward sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Moving forward, we are focusing on two key priorities: enhancing our reporting and detailing our carbon reduction plan. Our emissions reporting, based on an annual GHG assessment, ensures transparency and meaningful comparisons across years.

Refining our carbon reduction plan involves meticulous reviews for each scope. For Scope 1, a robust plan aims for 55% electrification of our motorized fleet by 2032. In Scope 2, we actively seek a strong partner in the energy sector for a transition to green electricity, collaborating closely with airports and primary energy suppliers. Initial successes include Liège, Belgium, and Nairobi, Kenya, where we already consume electricity from solar panels on our cargo warehouses.

Focusing on Scope 3, our attention turns to our refueling business, leveraging our influence for fuel transport and logistics. . Our aspiration is to have our comprehensive carbon reduction plan, along with specific targets, externally validated by SBTi within the next two years.
Going Electric

Eco-Powered Fleet

Increasing climate change awareness has brought a sharper focus on the use of fossil fuels. Swissport is aware of its responsibility and is increasingly using electrically powered and hybrid GSE (eGSE) instead of fossil-fuel powered vehicles.
