Etihad Airways sustainability Greener together

Sustainability is at the core of our business. We are committed to being Greener Together; a simple statement expressing our pledge to minimise our environmental impact by integrating sustainability into our day-to-day operations.

Together for the future

We continue to be inspired by the words of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan: “On land and in the sea, our forefathers lived and survived in this environment. They were able to do so because they recognised the need to conserve it, to take from it only what they needed to live, and to preserve it for succeeding generations.

For the world, for everyone

We take a holistic approach to sustainability, ensuring social, environmental and financial sustainability across our businesses. That means making better use of the planet’s resources, having a better impact on our communities and better economic growth.

We are closely aligned with the national priorities of the UAE, founded on principles of sustainable development that have driven our global Sustainable Development Goals. We focus on issues of global significance that are relevant regionally and can be addressed locally, in our own way.

Green Ambassadors

Green Ambassadors are sustainability-driven cabin crew who dedicate time to making change.

Identifiable by their bespoke Green scarves, Green Ambassadors operate our special Eco-Flights and are always ready to discuss with guests the changes we are making on board. More than 300 cabin crew are part of this voluntary programme.

Training and awareness

Our cabin crew and dedicated Green Ambassadors experience our Eco-flights to offer meaningful feedback and suggestions. Our flight crew are trained to find the most efficient flight routes to maximise fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
