The Luxaviation Group, one of the largest private aircraft operators worldwide headquartered in Luxembourg, has announced that it is reinforcing its corporate sustainability strategy with the launch of several initiatives in 2021.

To highlight the role of sustainability as a cornerstone of the Luxaviation Group, the company has appointed a Head of Sustainability to position sustainability as an integral part of the groups’ corporate strategy.

“We are committed to creating added value for our customers, employees and investors and do so in full consideration of our responsibilities toward the environment and society. Our long-term business prospects, and those of our clients, are tied to a sustainable planet”, commented Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group. "We therefore choose to integrate sustainability into our decision-making process, actively tackle social and environmental concerns that surround our business and continuously seek to improve our ways of operating. We realise that this matters to our clients and strive to offer a sustainable journey, both on the ground and in the air”.

In 2007, the Luxaviation Group became one of the first private jet operators to offer a carbon offset program by partnering up with MyClimate. Since then, the group has implemented various initiatives to reduce its impact on the environment, such as electrified ramp vehicles, exploring Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) procurement opportunities and digitalising processes to reduce paper waste.

In addition, to address the social dimension of corporate sustainability, Luxaviation follows a comprehensive management approach that promotes diversity of gender, demography and nationality and is embodying a family-aware corporate culture.

Going forward, Luxaviation will adopt an open book policy and publish a yearly Sustainability Report to share its progress with its clients, employees and stakeholders.

Luxaviation is also supporting the first ever Business Aviation Summit on Sustainable Aviation fuel (EBAA), being held virtually on 20 April 2021. Nicolas Kroll, Head of Sustainability for Luxaviation, will feature on the panel to discuss the broad adoption of SAF as described in the Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change.
