IATA Launches Environmental Sustainability Training Program with University of Geneva

(26 July 2021)
IATA has launched an environmental sustainability
training program together with the University of Geneva (UNIGE).

While sustainability has played an important role in the industry
for many years, it is a key priority as the sector rebuilds from
the effects of the COVID19 pandemic.

In a recent survey of more
than 800 industry training professionals, sustainability was
identified as a top training need, in order to ensure that
employees can obtain the necessary fundamental technical and
operational skills, but also the required soft skills.

The IATA – UNIGE Certificate of Advanced Studies
(CAS) in Environmental Sustainability in Aviation consists of six
modules covering the following topics:

1. Design a Sustainability Strategy
2.
Environmental Management Systems in Aviation
3. Responsible
Leadership
4. Sustainable Aviation Fuels
5. Corporate Social
Responsibility and Organizational Ethics
6. Carbon Markets and
Aviation


The various modules have been designed to
illustrate how both individual actions and overall company
policies effect sustainability. Participants will learn to
identify a set of measures which can be implemented to improve
sustainability in the short, medium, and long-term.

The program
also blends the environmental specific courses with corporate
social responsibility, organizational ethics and responsible
leadership, with the aim of allowing participants to find their
own answers to what ‘leading responsibly’ means at their
individual workplace and how to engage in responsible decision
making and avoid ethical blindness.

“The aviation workforce is highly skilled as it
needs to work to and comply with many global and industry
standards,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General. “Over the
years we have been adapting our training offer to meet the
changing requirements of the industry. Hence it should come as no
surprise that we are now adding environmental sustainability
training to our curriculum. Ensuring that all those working in
this industry are given the opportunity to acquire these new
skillsets is essential, as we increasingly place more emphasis on
making our operations more sustainable, while rebuilding from the
effects of the COVID19 pandemic.”

The training is offered as individual modules and
or a complete package of all six. Courses are delivered through
live virtual classrooms, providing real-time interactive
instructor-led online learning where participants can communicate,
view, and discuss presentations. During the sessions the
participants will also engage with learning resources while
working in groups, all in an online setting.

IATA has been offering training for the aviation
industry since 1972. Its curriculum covers more than 350 courses
which are taken by over 100,000 participants per year. The courses
are offered in a variety of formats such as classroom
(face-to-face and virtual), online, etc. in conjunction with more
than 470 training partners.
