Jeppesen Joins Aviation Green Alliance
The Jeppesen company has joined the Aviation Green Alliance as a founding member, the Lindbergh Foundation announced this week. The foundation launched the Alliance earlier this year to support industry efforts to address emissions, noise, efficiency and other environmental concerns in the aviation industry. Jeppesen CEO Mark Van Tine said the group "offers an opportunity for aviation-related companies and individuals to share best practices and establish innovative programs to help guide environmental stewardship." Other members of the group include Hawker Beechcraft, Cessna and Bombardier.
"With the Lindbergh Foundation's mission and history deeply rooted in aviation, we felt it was the Foundation's responsibility to step forward and lead a grassroots rally to support tangible, measurable, and sustainable environmental progress by the aviation industry," said Larry Williams, president of the Foundation. "We hope other like-minded individuals and companies … will come forward and help Lindbergh Foundation's Aviation Green Alliance lead the way."
