Why fly sustainability?
Sustainable development means first and foremost awareness for the real impact that each of our activities has on the environment. This is why TAROM will always show that we can safely and securely fly with top efficiency and lowest possible CO2 emissions.
We would like to thank all our passengers for their willingness to participate in our pro-environment and pro-efficiency messages. Especially for understanding that as far as luggage is concerned, sometimes less is more. A lighter load for an aircraft means significantly less CO2 emissions, as well as lower boarding times! In one short word: efficiency.
SkyTeam organized a friendly competition of ideas and innovations with the goal to test credible solutions for reducing any negative environment impact that the air transport industry has. In 2022, the SkyTeam Sustainable Flight Challenge clearly demonstrated that airlines can fly on average with 32% plus efficiency and an altogether lower CO2 impact. Please see the last years' result here.
We wish all 1500+ participants in the challenge good luck and please know that we appreciate everything you are doing in order to build a more sustainable air transport business.
We would like to thank all the internal and external partners involved in this project, who, through their actions, contribute to the sustainable flights.
With TAROM and SkyTeam we fly higher, lighter and more sustainable!
