dnata’s Green wheels in Amsterdam

Over in Amsterdam, where the 1,000-strong dnata handles around 550,000 tons of cargo each year and carries out ground services for almost 40 airlines (operating circa 10,000 flights/year), the company is well on track to meet its 2030 carbon reduction target. Globally, dnata aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 50% within the next 6 years. On a local level, this translates into transitioning from fossil-fuel powered vehicles to electric, for example. With the delivery, recently, of 15 electric smart cars, soon to be complemented by a further five, dnata can now boast that over 65% of its fleet of 250 ground support equipment (GSE) units in The Netherlands is green since it is either powered by electric or solar energy. Not just that, but also its remaining legacy GSE fleet is fueled by biofuel in the form of 100% hydro-treated vegetable oil (HVO), and thus emits 90% less carbon dioxide emissions than its diesel predecessor throughout its lifecycle.

Jan van Anrooy, Managing Director, dnata Netherlands, said: “We are committed to investing in green equipment and infrastructure to maximize environmental efficiency across our operations. Through close collaboration with our partners, we have promptly leveraged the airport’s new infrastructure by replacing our entire car fleet. As a result, over two-thirds of our fleet now operates on electric power or solar energy. We will continue our efforts to further reduce our environmental footprint, contributing to dnata’s commitment to reduce global carbon emissions.”
