Ground Handlers' Green Plans
Across the industry, ground service providers are focused on
reducing emissions generated on the ramp.
round handling service
providers (GHSPs) operate
an extensive fleet of ground
support equipment (GSE) vehicles
that are mainly operated by
combustion engines.
However, because of the increasing
awareness in aviation as to the
importance of reducing the industry's
global carbon footprint, GHSPs are
concentrating their efforts to cut
emissions industry-wide.
Cutting Emissions
Representatives of Czech Airlines
Handling (CAH) say in order to be
able to affirm that measures taken
actually reduce the carbon footprint,
it is necessary for a company to
start monitoring and evaluating
these parameters.
" We have been processing this
information since 2021. The information
does not only include CO2
but also indicators of water protection
and waste management. At the
same time, we are in the process of
implementing the Environmental, Social
and Governance (ESG) methodology. We
see reducing CO2
emissions as a social
responsibility, " say CAH officials.
According to the " Destination 2050
- A route to net zero European aviation
(D2050) report, " lowering emissions from
aircraft ground movement and auxiliary
power unit (APU) usage, through the
introduction of electrical operational
towing and using electrical ground
power, has the potential of realizing
cuts by 1.5 percent to 3 percent per
flight - depending on the aircraft type
and mission, affirms Nick Rhodes, the
European Regions Airlines Association's
(ERA) head of operations, safety and
" There are also possibilities with
hydrogen propulsion. For example,
in Germany, NOW GmbH (National
Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell
Technology) has created a work group
with airports and GHSPs to review
common standards on new technologies
for ground support equipment and
approached the industry to develop
