ClimateCare has expertise in climate and sustainable development and was selected by Menzies to further its Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments.
The partnership will enable Menzies to compensate for unavoidable carbon emissions with a portfolio of socially responsible projects as the company works towards becoming carbon neutral by 2033, its 200th anniversary.
Menzies is supporting three projects: providing clean cookstoves in Bangladesh, afforestation initiatives in Mexico, and rainforest protection measures in Indonesia. They align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals that Menzies has committed to advance as a signatory of the UN Global Compact.
Menzies is focused on removing emissions from its operations wherever possible. Through supporting ClimateCare projects, Menzies has been able to compensate for 43,000 tonnes of its 2021 global scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions, which equates to 48% of its global Co2e emissions.
The partnership with ClimateCare follows the launch of Menzies’ All-In the plan for a fair and sustainable future, which is driving forward collaboration with customers and partners as well as Menzies’ own local and global initiatives, such as sustainable aviation fuel programs, switching to electric GSE and addressing the gender balance with industry-leading diversity targets.
Katy Reid, Head of Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are delighted to partner with ClimateCare to deepen our ESG commitments and progress our All-In plan for a fair and sustainable future. With over 20 years of experience in developing innovative carbon offset programs, ClimateCare will provide highly valuable external perspectives and analysis, which we are applying across our network. As a global business, we remain focused on turning our social and climate responsibilities into positive outcomes for the future of our people and the planet.”
A spokesperson for ClimateCare said: “We work with forward-thinking organizations to turn their climate responsibilities into positive outcomes. Our trademark Climate+Care approach helps organizations take a smart approach to address their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions through projects which also support sustainable development. We’re pleased to be partnering with Menzies Aviation and helping them achieve their ESG goals.”
