OUR SUSTAINABLE IMPACT

While aviation is an essential component of modern travel, there is no denying the negative impact of fuel emissions and rising carbon levels on our planet. Sustainability is a major point of concern for Fireblade Aviation and we aim to be radically transparent and honest about the practicalities of aviation and the many misconceptions around so-called sustainable solutions.  We are determined to invest in research to assist with innovating and push boundaries in the hope of setting a new sustainable benchmark for the industry.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAIABLITY

As the world becomes more and more aware of the current climate crisis and its risk to the planet, both aviation companies and travelers have realised there is a need to change the current status quo in the industry. Fireblade Aviation is committed to reducing our environmental impact where possible to ensure a safe future for the planet and the industry, and to invest in research that can provide realistic long-term solutions to the current status quo.

TRAVEL AS A FORCE FOR GOOD

The travel and tourism industry provides income and stability for millions of impoverished communities around the world. It supports economic growth and stability, helps to preserve and celebrate marginalised cultures and funds conservation in wildlife reserves that rely solely on visitors and tourism revenue for survival. Tourism supports one in ten jobs globally, with the majority of these being women and mothers whose entire families benefit from access to hospitality sector employment. In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic which severely impacted the industry and countless families, Fireblade Aviation is actively looking for innovative ways to drive employment and skill growth within the industry.

FIREBLADE IS IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN

In September 2021 Fireblade took part in a case study with sustainability trailblazer, The Long Run, to ascertain whether their environmentally-based sustainability philosophy could be applied to the aviation industry.

After careful assessment  Fireblade Aviation is very proud to be their first Aviation Travel Partner. We have developed our sustainability framework, in line with The Long Run’s holistic 4 C’s framework which includes conservation, community, commerce and culture. 

This new structured and balanced approach will ensure that Fireblade becomes an active participant in amplifying the positive influence of travel on our communities and ecosystems across Africa.
