REDUCING AVIATION’S
CARBON FOOTPRINT

Together we’re committed to leading the industry,
let us take you on our journey.

 

We’ve joined forces with Bristol Airport to trial a range of initiatives with a long-term ambition to achieve net-zero operations at the airport.

Together with Bristol Airport, we've announced a new collaboration to align on their important strategic goals around sustainability. The partnership involves a series of trials all geared towards the overall ambition to achieve a net-zero emissions turnaround at Bristol, alongside taking steps to contribute positively towards reducing easyJet’s overall carbon footprint.
 
The joint partnership will study a wide range of cutting-edge developments and operational efficiencies, with easyJet using Bristol Airport as a test-bed to trial and implement the latest technological and innovative solutions for decarbonising its operations and reducing waste. It’s hoped that any successful results from the trials will have the potential to be rolled out across our network which spans 150 airports across 35 countries.
 
The partnership will work with various expert associates and partners throughout the aviation industry to help reduce and eliminate emissions from aircraft ground operations, challenging industry along the way to work together to develop affordable and achievable technological solutions toward mutual end goals that have far reaching benefits.
 
 


Some of the ways we're working together

Aircraft turnaround with low carbon emissions

Recycling and waste management

Optimising aircraft flight paths

Electrical ground equipment

Employee carbon-saving initiatives

Newer aircraft with 50% noise reduction

Sustainable aviation fuels

Supply chain carbon reductions

Implementing airspace modernisation

Electric passenger coach transportation



Jane Ashton, Director of Sustainability at easyJet, said:

  "easyJet takes sustainability seriously, already offsetting the carbon emissions from the fuel used on all our flights as an interim measure while we continue to champion the development of new technology. We will continue to optimise our operational fuel and carbon-efficiency and review what further measures we can take to reduce emissions across our operations.
This partnership with Bristol Airport is a good example of how we can look at every aspect of our operations, really challenging how we do things by implementing the newest technological solutions across a series of decarbonisation and waste reduction trials over the coming months."

 



Simon Earles, Sustainability and Corporate Affairs Director, Bristol Airport said:

  “We are delighted to be partnering with easyJet as part of our ambition to achieve net-zero emissions at the airport. As an airport we take our commitments seriously and by the end of 2021 we will have reduced or offset all the carbon emissions under our direct control.
Working in partnership with easyJet will enable us to develop joint initiatives and projects to contribute towards decarbonising aviation and the creation of green jobs.”
