TIACA survey reveals growing pressure on sustainability in air cargo

As a provider of international freight and logistics services, the U-Freight Group is mindful that a major talking point in the industry is sustainability

Commentators are asking whether this a sign of the industry getting serious about its environmental responsibilities or another initiative which is full of good intentions but ultimately lacking any bite?

As reported in Air Cargo News, TIACA’s latest sustainability survey has revealed a growing focus on sustainability in air cargo but also a gap between the smaller and larger organisations in terms of investment.

The survey of more than 280 air cargo professionals – produced in partnership with consultancy Change Horizon – showed that 67% of respondents felt that the pressure to be sustainable had increased compared with last year, mainly driven by demands from business partners and regulators.

Asked why sustainability is important, the top answer with 80% was customers – a two percentage point increase on a year ago.

73% said the move towards sustainability was driven by employees, up from 69% last year, and 69% said it was important for business partners, seven percentage points higher than in 2023.

However, the survey also revealed a growing gap between smaller and larger companies in terms of the focus on sustainability initiatives.

The survey showed that 92% of large companies had a sustainability strategy, compared with 56% of medium companies and 46% of small companies.
