Cargo handler CHI completes TIACA sustainability programme


CHI Group has become the first German cargo handler to complete TIACA’s BlueSky Sustainability programme.

The handler said that the BlueSky programme assesses, verifies, and validates the sustainability performance of air cargo companies. 

As part of the programme, CHI answered a questionnaire of nearly 300 questions and provided supporting evidence.

CHI said that it had implemented a number of measures to reduce its carbon footprint including 100% forklift fleet electrification, purchasing the first hydrogen-powered truck at Frankfurt Airport, and reprocessing wooden air cargo pallets.

Glyn Hughes, director general at TIACA, said: “As one of the initial partners of the BlueSky Programme I would like to congratulate CHI for achieving a strong result, demonstrating its in-depth focus on sustainability.

“CHI has proven that all addressed areas of the assessment, e.g., environment, society as well as culture and leadership, are already being pushed and that several measures have already been
successfully implemented.”

Kai Domscheit, chief executive of CHI Group and member of the TIACA Board of Directors, added: “We are delighted with the positive results of the BlueSky Assessment.

“The recommendations drawn from the assessment will pave the way for the next step of CHI’s Environmental, Social & Government (ESG) strategy, as CHI has started to tackle the ESG-Reporting requirements by the German Legislator. ”
