Air Canada has teamed up with Edmonton Airport to reduce carbon emissions and work towards a green and sustainable aviation sector. The freshly signed sustainability partnership agreement aims to reduce the carbon impact of air travel. Both Air Canada and Edmonton Airport are working towards a net-zero future.

The airline has committed to net zero emissions from all its global operations by 2050. The Montreal-based airline has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions from flights by 20% by 2030 and ground operations by 30% compared to a 2019 baseline.

The agreement between Air Canada and Edmonton Airport will see both the airline and airport working together to test emerging green technologies. In raw passenger numbers, Edmonton is Canada’s 5th busiest airport. The airport is also a significant Air Canada port.
