OUR ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

At Avjet | TSAS, we recognize that supporting sustainability initiatives and our environmental responsibility is at the heart of our long-term success. Over the past few years, we have chosen to invest in the future of our industry, in particular through innovative electrification projects to reduce our carbon footprint and through our involvement in facilitating production and supply of environmentally friendly aviation fuels.

It’s by one action at a time that we will reinvent our industry.

OUR VISION OF SUSTAINABILITY

Every day, we focus on the long-term development of our business by constantly improving our practices.

We invest in the future of our business sector, in particular through a project to electrify our ground service equipment as well as through the development of a partnership offering environmentally friendly aviation fuels.

WE PARTICIPATE ACTIVELY IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS.

As a key player in aviation fuel in Canada, we aim to drive change and make our industry more sustainable.

We are a founding member of the Canadian Sustainable Aviation Fuel Council (C-SAF).

C-SAF is a non-profit organization that brings together all players in the aerospace chain to facilitate the production and supply of affordable, low-carbon, Canadian-made sustainable aviation fuels (SAF).

Comprised of leaders from the Canadian aviation ecosystem, the committee's mission is to accelerate the deployment of SAF in Canada, to ensure that the aviation sector remains competitive in its transition to a carbon-neutral future.

We've teamed up with Electro Carbon to become Canada's green, local runway de-icing solution.

Electro Carbon is a Quebec-based company that has developed an innovative electrochemical process to produce a non-corrosive, fully biodegradable de-icing product (potassium formate) made from CO2. The potassium formate currently used in airports is made from petroleum and imported mainly from Asia and the Middle East.

For Avjet, we will leverage our extensive distribution network to become the exclusive supplier of the product to Canadian airports. Market launch is scheduled for 2026.

Since 2015, we have been working towards electrifying our entire fleet of vehicles and equipment, whether through the purchase of electric equipment or the conversion of our existing equipment to electric power.
 

Through our partnership with a local engineering firm, we created a revolutionary kit to convert fuel powered baggage tractors into electric baggage tractors with exceptional performance. This conversion kit is revolutionary and strategic as it uses a variety of recycled materials, reduces the risk of environmental contamination as well as green house gas emissions.
 

We are proud to work with innovative and support local sustainable development.

This project is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec as part of the Programme en efficacité du transport maritime, aérien et ferroviaire (PETMAF).

OUR SUSTAINABLE INTERNAL STRATEGY

We promote greener choices by engaging our teams in our strategy. This includes the establishment of a Green Committee, which presents eco-responsible initiatives:

  • Reduction of paper consumption

  • Ink cartridge salvage

  • Establishment of recycling facilities

  • Encourage the use of reusable bottles and cups

  • Internal surveys assessing the practices of our employees

WE PARTICIPATE IN THE GREEN INITIATIVES OF OUR PARTNERS

We are always eager to work alongside our partners and participate and support their initiatives, especially when they align without our own priorities like sustainable development. These opportunities for collaboration also help build the strong relationships we have with our customers.
