Optima Aero, a leader in innovative and sustainable helicopter and engine asset management solutions, is launching a new initiative to calculate carbon footprint avoidance through the reuse of serviceable helicopter parts. The first Green certificates were presented to Airbus Helicopters and Babcock France during the European Rotors trade show in Germany.

“Our team developed a thorough methodology to quantify the carbon footprint avoidance for helicopter operators who elected to take a sustainable approach by electing to buy serviceable helicopters or engine parts and embody them into their assets rather than purchasing new ones,” said Toby Gauld, President of Optima Aero. “We are proud to lead the way by helping our customers define a value on this responsible sourcing approach, which supports their Environmental, social and Governance (ESG) and sustainability strategy.”
