OSM Aviation

Environmental policy

OSM Aviation operates within the aviation industry, which is responsible for up to 3 % of the world’s annual CO2 emissions (2016 figures). Even though OSM Aviation does not have any aircraft operations, this does not free us from the responsibility to contribute to reducing the industry’s strain on the environment.
Blue is the new green

Zero-emissions flight training

At OSM Aviation we are taking the lead towards making our blue skies greener. We have placed an order for 60 fully-electric eFlyer training aircraft from Bye Aerospace, which will be used in combination with the simulators at OSM Aviation Academy to achieve carbon-neutral flight training. 

What we can do, we must do!

OSM Aviation’s CO2 footprint is mainly produced through our office activities, i.e. consumption of electricity, paper, ink, water. At the headquarters in Lysaker, Norway. The office utilizes two cars which are used for frequent visits to clients in Oslo. These cars are electric cars of a new make. In 2017 an environmental awareness program was launched within OSM Aviation, the focal points of this program are summarized here.

Our planet - Everybody's business!

A drive on OSM Aviation’s intranet (“Our Planet is everybody’s Business”) puts emphasis on the environmental responsibilities we have as a company, and provides concrete guidelines for how our team can make a meaningful difference.

Local responsibility

The local community in the country of the specific offices support recycling programs, the office must recycle as much as possible through their local program.

Our planet - A finite resource

Our efforts to do what we can places emphasis on the daily awareness of the scarcity of our natural resources and our responsibility and capacity to preserve our planet. 

Environmental program

The implementation of our environmental program in 2017 was just the beginning. Our commitment to minimizing our global footprint will be defined by how successful we are at achieving our environmental Key Performance Indicators (KPI's).

These key metrics are clearly defined and must be clearly communicated to our global team. As with any other major endeavor, our goals will need to be calibrated as our understanding deepens and the world evolves.
