Etihad Airways has been very vocal and active about building a sustainable business. To do that, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has partnered with Microsoft. Etihad will leverage the tools and technology provided by Microsoft to advance its sustainability goals. Microsoft and Etihad will use advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) for measuring and benchmarking the airline’s environmental footprint. This data will help Etihad in assessing and implementing carbon efficiency savings across business operations.
Tony Douglas, the CEO, Etihad Aviation Group, said, “Innovation and sustainability are at the core of our business, and our continued partnership with Microsoft will support us in meeting our sustainability goals to reduce carbon emissions both in the air through operational efficiencies, and on the ground, through improvements in our back-office processes and technology infrastructure.”
Etihad Airways has already made significant progress when it comes to building a sustainable business in the last two years. The airline is continuously working towards the ‘net-zero carbon emissions by 2050’ goal. This partnership with Microsoft is just going to boost the company’s efforts in doing so.
“Etihad is aligned with the UAE’s mission to conserve and preserve our environment for generations to come, and we have made significant progress over the last two years towards our ‘net-zero carbon emissions by 2050’ goal with our sustainability portfolio. We look forward to working closely with Microsoft to enhance these developments,” Douglas added.
