The NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses is a new sustainability initiative, created to provide FBOs and other aviation businesses a self-certification process for pursuing flexible, cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint.

Developed by a working group under NATA’s Environment Committee, the NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses is a free industry standard designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (including CO2), increase use of more environmentally friendly energy sources, reduce waste, and encourage sustainability operation-wide.

The standard is voluntary in nature, flexible in both implementation and certification methods, operationally focused, and consistent with existing environmental and sustainability standards for establishing and reducing a company’s carbon footprint. 

Visit NATA's Sustainability Resource page for access to Sustainability Standard FAQs, a Calculating Your Carbon Footprint video, and more. 

NATA would like to thank the following working group member companies for their time and dedication in developing the standard: FBO Partners, JRMA, Clay Lacy, World Fuel Services, 4AIR, and Jet Aviation. NATA appreciates  the support of the following organizations in testing the program and providing valuable feedback: Clay Lacy, Atlantic Aviation, 4AIR, Sun Air Jets, TAC Air, Gary Jet Center, and Maven by Midfield.
