Notes on entering the Best Sustainable Airport, Airline, Cruise & Rail Retail award:

Sustainability is of growing importance to consumers and to the global travel retail industry. Recognising this, TRBusiness launched the Travel Retail Sustainability Forum (TRSF), Travel Retail Plastic Pledge (Click here for more information) and then introduced the highly popular ‘Best Green Initiative at an Airport’ award for the first time in 2020.

Subsequently TRBusiness initiated the highly acclaimed Travel Retail Sustainability Week, the industry’s only event dedicated solely to showcasing and promoting sustainable businesses practices within travel retail.

In 2020 TRBusiness launched the ‘Best Green Initiative at an Airport’ award, which was won by Budapest Airport for its Free Eco-Friendly Shopping Bags. The following year this was extended to include airlines cruise and rail companies as well as airports, and their respective commercial partners from F&B, retail or other sectors. The Best Sustainable Airport, Airline, Cruise & Rail Retail Award 2021 was won by Vancouver Airport Authority.

Airports, airlines, cruise and rail companies and their respective commercial partners are taking giant strides towards a more sustainable approach to business. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic stalling international travel, stakeholders have been taking the opportunity to assess their environmental values and impact and a growing number of stakeholders are now more proactive than ever before, implementing new sustainable policies and initiatives.

Vancouver Airport Authority wins the 2021 Sustainable Airport, Airline, Cruise & Rail Retail Award for its recyclable chopsticks initiative.
