ATW's 2013 Gold Eco-Airline of the Year - Video


United Airlines has clearly made it a priority to develop and pursue its own environment and efficiency goals while also taking a lead in significantly influencing sustainability in the general commercial airline environment.  The editors were impressed with United’s realistic and practical approach to environmental action, with goals that are achievable, measurable, and which help take the entire industry forward. United management was also applauded for proactively engaging in climate change and biofuels working group initiatives, dedicating time and resources to such organizations as the IATA Climate Change Task Force and the Airlines for America (A4A) Environment Council, which United chairs. It was this combination of can-do spirit and determination to walk-the-walk on eco initiatives that caught the eye of the judges and made United a stand-out for its environmental and efficiency endeavors.
