Our planet

Our environmental focus

Emirates is committed to environmental stewardship and focusses on three areas: 

  • Reducing emissions
  • Consuming responsibly
  • Preserving wildlife and habitats

In line with these efforts, we are implementing the IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) system, a comprehensive environmental management system that covers our flight operations, corporate activities and an illegal wildlife trade module that supports our commitment.

The Environmental Sustainability Executive Steering Group meets regularly to set direction and review progress at a corporate level.

At a working-group level, various internal committees meet regularly to co-ordinate and implement sustainability actions.

Our goal is to reduce our environmental impact and become a leader in sustainable aviation practices.

Reducing emissions

Emirates supports IATA’s collective industry commitment and ICAO’s Long-Term Aspirational Goal (LTAG) to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. We are reviewing opportunities and pathways that will help to achieve this goal, which include: fleet renewal, operational fuel efficiency, sustainable and low carbon aviation fuels, and renewable energy.

Consuming responsibly

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact through responsible consumption, and make 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.

Preserving wildlife and habitats

The beauty and biodiversity of our world is an inspiration for travel, and we are committed to doing our part to preserve natural habitats and combat illegal wildlife trade, which is driving endangered species to the brink of extinction.
