Geneva, 24 May 2022. The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) are today highlighting the official launch of the ambitious programme called S.T.A.R.S. – Standards & Training for Aviation Responsibility and Sustainability – at the 2022 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2022), taking place 23-25 May in Geneva, Switzerland.
Young business aviation professionals have initiated S.T.A.R.S. from half a dozen companies in Europe who want to take a holistic approach to sustainability, going beyond emissions reductions and extending the concept to include social topics such as workplace diversity, gender equality and inclusion.
“It’s very ambitious what these young people have done,” said EBAA Secretary-General Athar Husain Khan noting that sustainability in the broad sense is the biggest challenge facing Business aviation today.
