Mango to achieve carbon neutrality by 2020

Mango, the discount subsidiary of South African Airways (SAA), intends to become the first African airline to become carbon neutral by 2020.
Both to help meet the community’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions but also to help Mango avoid South Africa’s proposed new carbon taxes.
Mango intends to undergo an audit process to measure all aspects of its flight operations to assess its “carbon footprint”.
“Once we have a baseline our mitigation strategy will be aligned to Mango’s current starting-block initiatives, such as the construction of sustainable vegetable gardens in communities, recycling and operational efficiencies. Our aim is sustainable development that will, where possible, further align national developmental goals and include added benefits of job creation and skills development, among others,” said CEO Nico Bezuidenhout.
