As they say, “You’ve got to be in it, to win it!”, and when it comes to TIACA’s Air Cargo Sustainability Awards, we are all winners. Why, because these awards encourage progress for the better – and have been doing so since 2019. On the Corporate side, best-practice initiatives are made public, and in the Start-Up and Small Businesses category, Winners and Runners-Up are presented with cash prizes (USD 10,000 and USD 2,500 respectively) and given a platform to share their projects. This includes “access to exclusive TIACA events and speaking opportunities…[and] submissions received throughout the awards period have the option of being featured in the newly released newsletter ‘Mission Innovation’,” the press release emphasizes.

Applications are open for the next Air Cargo Sustainability Awards at the Air Cargo Forum in Miami, 11-NOV24. A jury of independent industry and sustainability experts will determine the Corporate Category winner and invite the 3 finalists in the Start-Up/Small Business Category, to present their initiatives at the event. Projects can pertain to any of the eight key objectives for more sustainable air cargo industry as illustrated in TIACA’s Sustainability Roadmap: Environment (Decarbonization, Elimination of waste, Protection of biodiversity), Society (Supporting local economies and communities, Improvement of lives and wellbeing), and Culture & Leadership (Improvement of efficiencies and profitability, Attraction, retention, and development of employees, Building and nurturing partnerships).

Deadline for this year’s (again CHAMP Cargosystems sponsored) applications is 15SEP24. CHAMP CEO, Chris McDermott, said: “We are very proud to once again be sponsoring TIACA’s Air Cargo Sustainability Awards, which is an incredibly important industry initiative [and] hope to empower air cargo professionals to innovate with sustainability in mind, and encourage all interested parties to submit an application.”

Steven Polmans, Chairman, TIACA, commented: “The industry has made it very difficult for our jury over the last few years with a wide range of sustainable solutions from drone delivery, use of sustainable aviation fuel, company-wide sustainability focus, and eco-friendly packaging, just to name a few. We are excited to see all entries that will be submitted this year as we are an industry known for ingenuity and innovation.” Glyn Hughes, TIACA Director General, stated: “We look forward to continuing the support of the sustainable transformation of the air cargo industry by continuing to evolve our robust Sustainability Program that includes, the Sustainability Roadmap, the annual Sustainability Survey and Insights Report, Invest in Climate Action and the Air Cargo Training Library.
