Ross Aviation, a fixed-base operator at Scottsdale Airport, has achieved certification as a Green Aviation Business in accordance with NATA’s new Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses along with four of its other locations.
NATA’s sustainability standard provides FBOs and other aviation businesses a certification process for pursuing cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint, including using environmentally friendly energy sources, reduction of waste and the promotion of the sustainability mindset. The five locations include Fresno (FAT), Lincoln (LNK), Sarasota (SRQ), Scottsdale (SDL) and White Plains (HPN).
As part of the certification process, each FBO is required to estimate an annual carbon footprint. Ross Aviation will purchase offsets to achieve carbon-neutral operations. Sustainability has been an ongoing corporate commitment for Ross Aviation and they plan to continuing playing a role in crafting new sustainability standards with their carbon offset programs, offering their customers sustainability aviation fuel and pursuing other key initiatives. Brian Corbett, CEO of Ross Aviation, says “We see it as important – not just to ensure our own facilities meet and, in some cases exceed, all new standards – but also help our customers reach carbon neutrality with their flight operations as well.”
