Incheon’s initiative to reduce CO2
The airport has underwritten 50 per cent of price of vinyl pallet covers
January 16, 2013
Incheon International Airport Corporation in Seoul has taken a positive environmental initiative by underwriting 50 per cent of the purchase price of more than 7,000 biodegradable vinyl pallet covers used by the air cargo handlers. The project – started in 2009 under the Green Cargo Hub banner – began by supplying 400 lightweight air cargo containers to airlines and ground handlers in 2010, that reduced 28,000 tonnes in CO2 gas emissions. The adoption of environmentally friendly air cargo packaging materials is one more step in the initiative.
