Environmental Impact

It is our philosophy that what is good for the environment is also good for our business and we aim to operate accordingly at all times. We remain committed to minimizing the impact which our business divisions have on the environment. We also recognise that each of our business divisions impact the environment in different ways and we have sought to develop policies and best practises which address each of these.

Case Studies




Carbon Trust Standard; With 4 consecutive awards, Menzies Distribution is one of 50 organisations which have been making continuous reductions year-on-year and achieving the Carbon Trust Standard more than 3 times.

The Carbon Trust Standard is awarded to organisations that measure, manage and reduce their carbon footprint. It shows which businesses and organisations are taking real action on climate change and reducing carbon emissions and the award recognises Menzies Distribution’s efforts to date and its commitment to further reductions.



Environmental Recognition Award; This year, Menzies Aviation Ibérica received the ISO14001 Environmental Recognition Award for the outstanding dedication Menzies have to environmental improvements in Spain.

ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an Environmental Management System. It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage and the trust of stakeholders.

The certificate was presented by AENOR, The Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification, alongside Gabriel Barceló, Vice-President of the Regional Government of the Balearic Islands and Minister for Innovation, Research and Tourism and José Hila, Mayor of the City Council Palma de Mallorca. The award follows the development and implementation of Ibérica’s effective Environmental Management Systems.
