As part of its sustainability agenda, The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has published the industry’s first Air Cargo Sustainability Roadmap. This comprehensive publication is designed to support the air cargo industry through what will be quite a period of transformation.
The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced that they have launched the 2nd Annual Air Cargo Sustainability Survey.
With this year’s survey, we aim to measure the progress the air cargo community has made in its journey towards a sustainable industry within the last year.
The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has launched an initiative to attract members from the United Nations designated least developed countries. As part of our commitment to Sustainability, the Board of Directors have approved a discount on membership dues for companies headquartered in one of the countries identified as least developed by the UN.
In a climate where action speaks louder than words, Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) the world’s largest air cargo handler, is showing its commitment to protecting the environment through sustainable operating practices.
As the world’s eyes were on the UNFCCC COP26 discussions in Glasgow the last couple of weeks, the climate negotiations offered a powerful momentum for companies to build on and become truly sustainable.

More Companies Are Making Commitments to Achieve Net Zero Targets – But Over 60% Have Either Set Targets Far Into the Future, or No Clear Target Date
More companies are making serious commitments to achieve net-zero targets – but less companies are ready to act now. A recent survey by Swiss project developer and climate solutions provider South Pole, The Push and Pull of Net Zero: Drivers of Climate Action, found that – compared to last year – more companies are setting climate targets, but over 60% of them have either set their targets far out in the future, or have not announced any target years at all.
A quick google search for the word Sustainability generates over 1.3 billion entries demonstrating how the topic has become a critical component of our work, social, recreational, and family time. It is a key priority of the TIACA board and we are developing a number of programs addressing the three Ps of PEOPLE, PLANET and PROSPERITY.
TIACA supports its members and works with industry partners and regulators to advocate and drive change for a safe, profitable and united air cargo industry that embraces modern technologies and practices to sustainably and fairly serve trade and social development worldwide.
