BAG Annual Review 2020 Launch
BAG is delighted to launch their first online digital BAG Annual Review! Traditionally, BAG has produced a document showcasing activities over the course of the previous year which has been circulated at events and exhibitions. This year, we wanted to showcase BAG’s activities in a virtual and interactive way to highlight month by month what BAG has achieved, including key activities, webinars, Special Interest Groups and Regions, and how BAG has successfully engaged with its members throughout a challenging year. To view the 2020 BAG Annual Review please click here. Please tell us what you think and give us some feedback by contacting Hannah Sallabanks.

BAG Members Virtual Briefing

The British Aviation Group will be holding their first virtual Members Briefing of 2021, in place of its traditional Spring BAG Members day, on the 25 February 2021 from 15:00-16:00 via MS Teams. The session will be hosted by Jane Thompson, BAG Board Member and Lead of the BAG Events Working Group and Toby Gibbs, Lead of the BAG Sustainability Working Group.

A renewed emphasis on Sustainability is emerging as the front and centre topic for aviation recovery and securing the sector’s future license to operate and grow. With this emphasis on sustainability the sector needs to focus its efforts around this theme and we have therefore dedicated our traditional BAG Spring Members Day to this topic.  We are delighted to welcome our guest speaker Jean-Louis Bartlett, Senior Consultant, Sustainability at WSP who will be presenting on the latest Developments in the Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme.

We are also giving members the opportunity to present their companies at the briefing around the Sustainability theme and share experiences, lessons learnt and case studies with the membership. If you would be interested in presenting, please find the criteria and themes below. Please click here to submit your interest to present. The organisers, in collaboration with the BAG Sustainability Working Group, will select the best examples which meet the set criteria, also ensuring fair representation across the 5 BAG pillars and the 5 presentation themes.
