The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced that the second edition of the Air Cargo Sustainability Award is now open for applications. The competition aims to recognize outstanding businesses and industry initiatives leading the way to a more sustainable air cargo. CHAMP Cargosystems, one of the leading industry IT solutions providers, has generously committed to continue sponsoring these awards.
“CHAMP is pleased to continue supporting TIACA for the 2nd edition of the Air Cargo Sustainability Awards. The unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our industry is putting more than ever sustainability at the forefront of our priorities. After seeing several aftershocks in every corner of the world, we should thrive to collaborate and ensure fast and sustainable recovery. This event is a unique opportunity to influence the ´new normal´ and strengthen the value of air cargo which plays such an important role today,” states Arnaud Lambert, CEO of CHAMP Cargosystems.
TIACA is calling for applications demonstrating solutions and practices making positive change in the 3+2 areas of TIACA’s sustainability vision for air cargo: supporting social welfare, economic development and environmental protection through innovation and partnerships.
This year, two categories of leadership in sustainability will be awarded:
Corporate Prize will recognize an established corporation, an international organization or a scholar with a long-standing presence in the cargo community with a one-year free membership in the TIACA Sustainability Strategic Partnership Program, worth USD 10’000.
The Start-Up Prize will recognize and encourage young growing businesses building their presence in air cargo industry:
- Winner: USD 10’000
- Two runners-up: USD 2’500 each
All shortlisted candidates will also be recognized with access to exclusive TIACA events and speaking opportunities, publicity in TIACA’s communication and networking opportunities.
“The COVID-19 crisis has put our industry under an enormous pressure, but it has also given us a unique opportunity to rethink and optimize the air cargo business model and innovate faster than ever before,” said TIACA’s Chair Steven Polmans. “I am confident that by embracing this opportunity we will make air cargo more sustainable and more resilient. And by launching this year’s award we want to recognize and encourage the change makers who are taking our industry forward.”
A panel of independent industry and sustainability experts will choose the three shortlisted submissions in each category. The award finalists will be invited to present their solutions at the Air Cargo Forum 2020 in Miami, the largest air cargo networking event this year.
