Over 100 participants joined Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye last week in an event celebrating the Heathrow Sustainability Partnership. We’ve put together a short clip of the key speakers on the day, as well as more information on the partnership itself. Enjoy.
Attendees were encouraged to find out more about the Partnership’s projects, and other collaborative programmes at Heathrow, committing to operating responsibly through: by signing up to collaborative projects such as the Clean Vehicles Partnership, the Heathrow Safety Charter, the Cooking Oil Recycling Club and Heathrow Academy.
With 320 companies employing 76,500 people, running Heathrow has similar challenges to a small city. The actions and behaviours of all companies based at Heathrow determine the airports’ ability to operate responsibly.
The Heathrow Sustainability Partnership is a group of companies representing all sectors at the airport, from airlines and ground handlers to construction companies and retailers, all working hard to improve Heathrow’s sustainability performance.
Who is in the partnership?
Led by a Board made up of the Chief Executives of 13 companies operating at Heathrow, the Partnership shares challenges to achieve long term improvements by focussing on three main issues;
- Transport: travel to and from the airport, operating vehicles within the airport and aircraft landing, taking-off and on the ground.
- Resources: energy use, waste generation and building design
- People: employment and skills, local procurement, community investment.
