QAS first ground handler in the world to be given IEnvA



Qatar Aviation Services (QAS) has become the first ground handler in the world to receive IATA’s environmental management system certification, the IATA Environmental Assessment programme (IEnvA). The bespoke standards developed by IATA, in collaboration with Qatar Airways Group and international sustainability experts, set a framework for achieving environmental sustainability across all ground operations. The IEnvA for Ground and Cargo Handling Service Organizations certificate, an expansion of the IEnvA for airlines program, was launched last year. Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said, “We are focused on keeping sustainability at the core of our operations. Qatar Airways was the first airline in the Middle East to be accredited to the highest level of IEnvA in 2017.”
