The GHS Focus
Whereas the IATA 2009 agreement solely focused on the reduction of CO2 emissions as the largest contributor to environmental burden caused by air travel and technology has by far the best prospects for reducing CO2 emissions of commercial aircraft, there are few developments in helicopter technology that can contribute to the reduction CO2 emissions. Therefore, GHS focusses on operations and infrastructure not only to minimize CO2 emissions but also to aim for a precautionary approach to environmental challenges, to take more environmental responsibility and to adapt environmentally friendly technologies wherever possible:
- Modernize the fleet
- Promote alternative fuels
- Increase operational efficiency
- Improve infrastructure
- Reduce aircraft noise
- Optimize flight procedures
- Build and commute green
- Expand environmental management
Global Helicopter Service manages environmental protection. All our Strategies, measures and missions are coordinated with our efforts to protect the environment. Environmental management within Global Helicopter Service will be systematically expanded and further developed at all levels.
Certified CO2 Neutral
Climate change is the biggest threat modern humans have ever faced and highly prioritized by our employees, clients and partners. It is a logical step for us to become a certified CO2 neutral business and make this a long-term commitment as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program.
GHS has tracked, documented and calculated its overall CO2 emissions based on the amount of JetA1 burned by using common formulas for the year 2021. Following this calculation the amount of CO2 has been offset via climate protection projects certified by the UN.
Thus we neutralized our carbon footprint for our operations in respect of flight hours flown in Africa for 2021 and will again continue to do so in 2022.
