Working in partnership to transform baggage
Tuesday 25th January 2022
We’re on a mission to make travelling with baggage better for our planet. We all dream of leaving footprints in the sand on picturesque beaches, but that doesn’t have to apply to our carbon footprint. Travelling with baggage has a surprising impact on the environment and we’re here to help change that.Skip to content
The travel industry has a lot of baggage. Baggage is an often overlooked part of the travel industry’s environmental impact and we aim to change that.

'The Green Baggage initiative is a much-needed change in the way commercial aviation looks at baggage processing and importantly breaks down the 'whole journey' view of aviation sustainability. With electrification and biofuel technology bringing sustainability to the fore within aviation, there are many wins to be had by pinpointing the opportunities within the baggage handling sphere, bringing a significant reduction of pressure on the planet within the complete baggage journey. We're proud to have initiated Green Baggage and look forward to the difference it will make in the world and for the future'
NACO’s commitment to sustainability extends to all areas of aviation. As an expert in BHS, sustainability, and terminal planning, we see great potential for reducing the environmental impact of BHS. We’re proud to be part of the Green Baggage Alliance and shape a more resilient and sustainable future of aviation together!
