NBAA’s Sustainable Flight Department Accreditation Program identifies business aviation entities meeting exceptional environmental sustainability standards. The goal of this accreditation program is to further advance a sustainability culture in the business aviation community. The program recognizes those that meet or exceed specified criteria in the following areas:
Reducing environmental impact as a result of conducting flights (e.g., carbon emissions) and creating efficiencies
Optimizing a sustainability culture with an emphasis on carbon emissions as a result of personnel air travel and implementation of environmental programs (e.g., recycling, reduction of resources)
Implementing sustainable strategies related to equipment and vehicles that support business aviation operations (e.g., aircraft tugs, business aviation entity owned/leased vehicles).
Advancing sustainability through physical infrastructures (e.g., hangars, facilities)
