Sustainability spotlight: Air Canada

AIR Canada recently announced plans to reduce its use of single-use plastics on board its aircraft and in its workplaces as part of an ongoing commitment to minimise its waste.

From June this year, the Canadian carrier will replace plastic stir sticks on flights with a wooden alternative for all drinks served, saving an estimated 35 million items of plastic each year.

“Through seemingly small measures such as eliminating plastic stir sticks, to major investments such as our $10 billion fleet modernisation, we are making great strides in our ongoing sustainability programs — notably improving fuel efficiency by 43% since 1990,” said Teresa Ehman, Director of Environmental Affairs at Air Canada.
