His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum speaks on environmental sustainability for the Emirates Group.
Operating modern and fuel efficient aircraft has been central to Emirates’ business model from the airline’s inception. We fly one of the youngest wide-body aircraft fleets in the sky with an average age of 6.5 years. This ongoing, multi-billion dollar investment, is Emirates’ biggest commitment - not only to passenger comfort, but also to reducing our environmental impact.
Emirates is committed to reducing our environmental impact through responsible consumption - by making careful decisions about what items we purchase, how we source them, how we manage the disposal of waste, and how we consume water and power.
The beauty and bio-diversity of our world is an inspiration for travel, and Emirates is committed to doing our part to preserve natural habitats and stop the illegal wildlife trade which is driving endangered species to the brink of extinction.
