ATR is attending the UN Climate Change Conference COP22, in Marrakech, Morocco, from November 7-18, 2016.

ATR said it is an integral partner and advocate in the global aviation community’s fight against climate change.

ATR designs and builds more eco-efficient means of transport to connect people and communities and strives to reduce the environmental impact of its airplanes throughout their life-cycle. Today, ATR 72-600 has the lowest fuel consumption per seat in its category

“These actions are part of ATR’s broader strategy built around the global environmental targets set for the industry,” said Tom Anderson, ATR senior vice president commercial and customer support. “Together with other airframe and engine manufacturers, airlines, fuel suppliers, airports, and governments, ATR is working toward collective industry goals. These include 1.5% average annual fuel efficiency improvement through 2020, carbon neutral growth from 2020, and a 50% reduction in CO2 by 2050 relative to 2005 baseline levels.”

Anderson took the floor to present ATR’s key environmental priorities at the COP22 aviation side event.

“ATR is fully committed to responsible travel. Each year 300 million passengers travel on regional aircraft that serve around 3,500 airports across the world. We strive every day to promote solutions that facilitate the development of regional connectivity in a sustainable way,” said Tom Anderson.
