ECO-FRIENDLY apprentices at Airbus have planted trees at its Broughton and Filton sites.
The action was a symbol of Airbus’s ongoing commitment to partner the United Nations Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD) on its Green Wave youth outreach programme.
Green Wave is designed to raise awareness of the crucial role bio-diversity plays in our lives and our futures.
Mark Stewart, Airbus’s UK country manager, said: “Airbus recognises air transport contributes 2% of manmade carbon dioxide emissions and is fully committed to doing whatever possible to reduce this impact.
“However, aviation can also put resources and expertise into supporting the people tackling the major causes of climate change, such as the 20% created by deforestation. That is why we are committed to supporting the Green Wave programme.”
