Etihad Airways has partnered with Microsoft to drive sustainability through the business.

The companies will work together to benchmark Etihad’s carbon footprint using Microsoft technology such as AI and analytics.

The airline will set goals and targets to reduce its carbon footprint using data from the tech giant – it has pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Tony Douglas, Group CEO, Etihad Airways, said: “Innovation and sustainability are at the core of our business and our continued partnership with Microsoft will support us in meeting our sustainability goals to reduce carbon emissions both in the air through operational efficiencies and on the ground, through improvements in our back office processes and technology infrastructure.

“Etihad is aligned with the UAE’s mission to conserve and preserve our environment for generations to come and we have made significant progress over the last two years towards our net zero carbon emissions by 2050 goal with our sustainability portfolio. We look forward to working closely with Microsoft to enhance these developments.”
