CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA), the world’s most trusted source of aviation market intelligence and a part of the Aviation Week Network, recognised Wizz Air, Cebu Pacific, Delta Air Lines, Volaris and Etihad Airways among the globe’s top airlines at CAPA’s annual Environmental Sustainability Awards for Excellence in Singapore this evening (03-Nov-2022).
The eight award winners were presented at a gala dinner at the Capella, attended by over 150 of the region’s aviation luminaries and part of the 2022 CAPA Asia Aviation Summit.
In 2021 CAPA, along with its partner Envest Global, launched its inaugural Airline Sustainability Benchmarking Report, pioneering the world’s most effective evaluation of airline carbon emissions.
To coincide with the 2022 report launch, CAPA evolved its Asia Awards for Excellence into the CAPA Sustainability Awards for Excellence.
CAPA – Centre for Aviation, Content & Marketing Director, Marco Navarria said: “The CAPA Aviation Sustainability Awards for Excellence uses a range of independent data and analysis to recognise those airlines and partners in the travel chain who have demonstrated clear leadership, innovation and commitment to sustainability initiatives. These winners are helping to generate the positive momentum that is needed to drive the whole industry forward towards its environmental goals.”
CAPA – Centre for Aviation, Information Services Director, Sharon Dai said: “CAPA and Envest Global remain committed to providing objective, data-driven assessment of the sustainability performance of the world’s airlines, and being the single source of truth for key industry stakeholders. In this second iteration of report, we analysed the actual sustainability performance of the world’s 100 largest airlines in 2021, representing more than 70% of the global commercial aviation emissions.
“In another world first, we are proud to introduce the CAPA/Envest Airline Sustainability Rating system, which rates and ranks each airline’s sustainability performance relative to other airlines. The industry's ambitious and essential goal to achieve net zero emissions will place airline business models under extraordinary pressure. Those that wish to survive and prosper will need reliable data, benchmarking and analysis from trusted sources.”
