IAG Cargo is growing its green credentials with the appointment of Saleem Saeed as its new sustainability manager.
Saeed previously worked within the construction sector and will use his experience to lead the sustainability strategy across the business.
He will work on enhancing the current ‘Fit for Future’ strategy that aims to further integrate sustainability into IAG Cargo’s operations.
“What truly energises me about joining IAG Cargo is the prospect of contributing to a global company in a dynamic setting,” said Saeed. “Environmental and social responsibility are really important, ensuring everybody’s needs are addressed without compromising future generations’ requirements.
“This role will allow me to actively steer IAG Cargo’s sustainability strategy and empower our people to create a better future. I’m looking forward to building on the fantastic initiatives already in place.”
Saeed will focus on new efficient ways of working to ensure IAG Cargo minimises its carbon footprint across the organisation – for example, the business has recently been trialling an electric terminal tractor and is actively exploring an expanded electric fleet.
Jenny Critchley, chief transformation officer at IAG Cargo, commented: “Saleem’s appointment as our Sustainability Manager reinforces our dedication to pioneering eco-conscious practices within the air cargo sector.
“Saleem has a passion for sustainability, so I have no doubt that he will make this role his own, leading IAG Cargo into a new era of responsible operations. His passion for innovation and transformative change aligns seamlessly with our vision to be ‘Fit for Future’.”
