LSG Sky Chefs goes green with ANZ
LSG Sky Chefs has teamed up with Air New Zealand and the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to tackle inflight waste from Air New Zealand's international services arriving in Auckland.
The waste reduction initiative, Project Green, is expected to divert 150 tonnes of waste from landfill annually. It has already enabled 40 Air New Zealand inflight products previously sent to landfill (due to biosecurity controls) to be reclassified so that they can be reused on future flights if removed from aircraft sealed and untouched.
Products approved to date include sealed beverages and unopened snacks with further items expected to be added in coming months.
LSG Sky Chefs New Zealand general manager Pieter Harting says: “This project has been an exciting journey for us, requiring a big culture shift and getting our people onboard with new ways of working.” lsg-group.com
