FW: FW: summary meetings with airlines
Meeting with Quatar Airlines (
joined by the trainee
(ministère developpement durable, France)
was interested in knowing whether or not the incoming SUP directive once transposed will
apply or not to their flights (international flights). We replied that usual law applies, but that
for the specifics they need to look themselves.
thought that recyclable plastics was out of the scope (is not of course)
We also explained that exemptions for airlines, even if they can be considered as closed
loop, are not possible
We suggested that they could use reusable plastic cutlery, to which he answered that these
might weight more that disposable cutlery and therefore lead to more CO2 emissions.
Was concluding that Qatar airlines wants to be a sustainable frontrunner
