Environmental Sustainability

At BOC Aviation, we actively work to reduce our direct carbon emissions and environmental footprint. We emphasize the use of electronic communications and video conferencing to avoid unnecessary travel. We have taken a strong stand against the use of private jets, which are prohibited under our travel policy.

BOC Aviation continuously invests in digital transformation in order to reduce our impact to the environment as well as to improve productivity and reduce costs. As a result, our resources efficiency metrics in 2021 continued to remain stable when measured against headcount.

BOC Aviation achieved 100% carbon neutrality for direct emissions in 2021 by purchasing carbon credits from an accredited project, WWF Clean Cookstoves project in Ningshan County in China, to offset our direct carbon emissions and to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which BOC Aviation is committed to supporting.
