Clay Lacy first firm certified under NATA’s sustainability initiative


Clay Lacy Aviation has become the first company to be certified to the National Air Transportation Association’s (NATA) all-new Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses. 

NATA’s sustainability initiative has been devised to provide FBOs, airports, and other aviation businesses with options to lower their carbon footprint. The initiative has been developed by a working group under NATA’s Environment Committee.

“NATA provides members of the business aviation community with practical tools to operate safely, improve service, and foster organisation-wide sustainable practices,” said NATA President and CEO, Tim Obitts. “Clay Lacy Aviation’s innovative sustainability initiatives are a great example for the industry, and we congratulate them for being the first business aviation company to quality for certification.”

Scott Cutshall, Clay Lacy, senior VP, Development and Sustainability, added: “A lot of time and energy has been invested by NATA staff and their Environmental Committee to develop this standard and the tools that will help aviation businesses incorporate more sustainable practices. This certification is an important next step in our journey toward sustainable operations.”
