United wins 3rd corporate TIACA sustainability award
United won the award for its Eco-Skies Alliance program for companies to come together and purchase SAF
United Airlines won the third edition of the Corporate Category Air Cargo Sustainability Awards by the The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) in association with CHAMP Cargosystems.
United won the award for its Eco-Skies Alliance program which is a new initiative for companies to come together and contribute to the purchase of sustainable aviation fuel with over 20 major corporations having joined so far.
The six-member jury included Chris McDermott of CHAMP Cargosystems, Liana Coyne of Coyne Airways, Hendrik Leyssens of Swissport, Andrea Tang of FIATA, Patricia Varela of IATA and Jaisey Yip of Changi Airport Group.
While the corporate prize recognises an established corporation, an international organisation or a scholar with a long standing presence in the cargo community, the start-up prize includes $10,000 for the winner and $2,500 for two runners-up.
The finalists for the start-up category include MissionGo, Waves and XFret.
"Firstly, I want to congratulate all the organisations that submitted an entry, the jury comments were very well received and focused on the overall high quality of the applications," says Steven Polmans, Chair, TIACA. "I would also like to thank the jury members for their time and dedication in reviewing the entries and the results of their deliberations. And of course, it gives great pleasure to congratulate United Cargo for being selected as the overall corporate winner and to the three startup/small business finalists. I look forward to their participation at the upcoming Executive Summit in San Francisco."
An awards ceremony will be held during the upcoming Executive Summit/Transport Logistics Americas Forum being held in San Francisco on March 22-23.
