Government ticks Clay Lacy's green power achievements
The EPA recognises Clay Lacy sourcing one third of its energy from renewable resources, including 700,000kWh of wind power and the installation of a 750,000kWh solar array plus 40 electric vehicle chargers.
Sustainable fuel was introduced throughout Clay Lacy last year.

Clay Lacy Aviation has been certified as a member of the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership, a programme that supports organisations that use green power voluntarily to protect human health and the environment.

Clay Lacy is one of the first companies in the business aviation industry to receive certification under the Green Power Partnership, joining some of the largest organisations in the world in the transition to renewable sources of energy. In awarding the Green Power Partner Certificate, the EPA recognises Clay Lacy sourcing 33 per cent of its energy from renewable resources, including 700,000kWh of wind power and the installation of a 750,000kWh solar array and 40 electric vehicle chargers at its facilities.

“Receiving the EPA's Green Power Partner Certificate was a key goal of our corporate sustainability strategy and validates the efforts we've undertaken to operate more sustainably,” says senior vice president of development and sustainability Scott Cutshall. “It complements our carbon neutral facilities rating, as well as carbon offset programmes and the ongoing supply of SAF introduced last year at our FBOs to help our clients in achieving their sustainability goals. This Earth Day, we're proud of the steps we've taken to benefit the environment, our employees, clients and communities.”

Clay Lacy's facilities have been carbon neutral since 2019, and it is the first company certified to the National Air Transportation Association's (NATA) Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses. It is also the world's first company to be independently reviewed and rated Facility Green Level by 4Air, affirming FBO facilities and ground emissions lead industry-level standards and meet carbon neutrality.

Clay Lacy is executing a long-term strategic plan to operate more sustainably, on the ground and in the air. The company works with fuel suppliers and aviation industry associations to foster the development and use of sustainable jet fuel and emission and waste reduction programmes. It is also moving forward with the development of two new FBO and MRO facilities at Oxford-Waterbury airport in Connecticut and John Wayne airport in Santa Ana, California that will incorporate a host of sustainable construction and operational practices to reduce the environmental impact of those facilities.
