LATAM Cargo’s successful environmental recertification in Miami

The ground operations in Miami of LATAM Cargo have been ISO 14001 internationally certified for 3 years, thanks to its Environmental Management System (EMS). This EMS defines for the cargo and maintenance operations and for the administrative functions, procedures and standards designed to minimize environmental impacts and manage the carbon footprint.

This September these operations were successfully recertified according to the new ISO14001:2015 standard. Compared to the previous version, this new standard requires greater risk management and reinforces the relevance of the leaders’ accountability on all stages of the system, including strategic, planning and monitoring.

The achievement of this certification demonstrates that our environmental management system prevents pollution, reduces the environmental impact of daily operations and, at the same time, allows for greater efficiency.

“This recertification is a very important achievement for LATAM Cargo. Even more so because it is achieved under a more demanding standard than the previous one and confirms that our environmental management is world class. Efficiently managing the current and potential impacts of our operation on the environment is not only a responsibility, but a key element for achieving our aspiration to be one of the most admired airline groups in the world, “says Andres Bianchi, VP Cargo Business LATAM.

“This recertification was the result of sustained teamwork in the different areas with key processes in environmental management, as well as the involvement and participation of local employees in the recycling, reuse and reduction of materials”, concludes Francisco Arana, VP of Flight Operations.
