In our "Conversations with Green Champions," Rolland President Philip Rundle asks sustainability-minded organizations about their approach to environmental responsibility.
In the second part of a two-part interview, Teresa Ehman, P.Eng., Director, Environmental Affairs at Air Canada, Canada's largest commercial airline, speaks about biofuels and sustainability reporting, and Joe Sorella, Manager, Corporate Services, covers sustainable purchasing.
The first interview was titled Air Canada is investing $10 billion in low emission aircraft.
What prompted Air Canada's first biofuel flight?
TE: Biofuel, which has a low carbon footprint, was one part of what we called a 'perfect flight' from an environmental perspective, on an Airbus from Toronto to Mexico City in 2012.
