ATR is present at the high-profile UN Climate Change Conference COP22, in Marrakech, Morocco, from November 7-18, 2016.
 
ATR is an integral partner and advocate in the global aviation community’s fight against climate change. The company has demonstrated its efforts and determination by joining the Convention through concrete actions. ATR designs and builds more eco-efficient means of transport to connect people and communities and strives to reduce the environmental impact of its airplanes throughout their life-cycle. Today, ATR 72-600 has the lowest fuel consumption per seat in its category. These actions are part of ATR’s broader strategy built around the global environmental targets set for the industry.

 
Together with other airframe and engine manufacturers, airlines, fuel suppliers, airports, and governments, ATR is working toward collective industry goals. These include 1.5% average annual fuel efficiency improvement through 2020, carbon neutral growth from 2020, and a 50% reduction in CO2 by 2050 relative to 2005 baseline levels.
 
A sustainable and eco-responsible aviation industry leader, ATR participates in aeronautic events on the role of the world’s regional connectivity in adapting to climate change. ATR Senior Vice President Commercial and Customer Support Tom Anderson today took the floor to present ATR’s key environmental priorities at the COP22 aviation side event.
 
“ATR is fully committed to responsible travel. Each year 300 million passengers travel on regional aircraft that serve around 3,500 airports across the world. We strive every day to promote solutions that facilitate the development of regional connectivity in a sustainable way,” explained Tom Anderson.
