Hampshire Air traffic control giant vows to become greener
AIR traffic control firm NATS has vowed to switch to renewable gas and electric in a bid to protect the environment.
From April, more than 90 per centÂ of the electricity and gas used across NATS '˜main sites '“Â including is base at Swanwick '“ will be green energy, obtained from biomethane and non-fossil fuel sources.
This change is part of a wider piece of work to make NATS' estate as environmentally friendly as possible '“ including a reduction in plastic use, encouraging eco-friendly travel options and seeking to minimise all types of waste.
The latest changes will reduce the overall amount of CO2 pumped out by the Whiteley-basedÂ Â Â organisation Â an estimated 21,223 tonnes a year.
Ian Jopson, head of environmental and community affairs, said: '˜I'm really pleased we're able to continue driving sustainability through all aspects of the NATS business, further cementing our commitment to sustainability.'
