More About the Program
The IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) Program is an environmental management and evaluation system designed to independently assess and improve the environmental performance of an airline. The airline industry
shares common environmental challenges and solutions.
IEnvA is a voluntary program based on the core principles of compliance with environmental obligations and a commitment to continual environmental management improvement.
Adopting the standard IEnvA procedures and recommended practices allows an airline to focus resources on improving its environmental performance rather than developing an
Environmental Management System (EMS) from scratch.
“South African Airways has found the IEnvA programme to be an excellent method with which to plan an environmental strategy that is relevant, informative and has an impact that will affect real change in the manner in which an airline tackles its environmental obligations. IEnvA is an important tool that an airline can utilise to fly responsibly and minimise environmental impacts and SAA intends pursuing IEnvA and IEnvA Core+ accreditation as a cornerstone of Environmental Policy.”
- Ian Cruickshank, Group Environmental Affairs, South African Airways
IEnvA is compatible with other EMS systems (e.g. ISO14001) with an expandable scope for additional modules including Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO,) Airline Ground Operations (GO) and Airline Catering Services.
The IEnvA Registry is a list of airlines that have successfully completed an independent IEnvA assessment (Stage 1 / Stage 2).
