Royal Air Maroc (AT) has been awarded the IATA Environmental Assessment (IEnvA) and IWT (IATA Illegal Wildlife Trade) labels by the International Air Transport Association – IATA.

This dual certification recognises airlines that demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability and nature conservation.

With this recognition, RAM becomes the first African and the seventh global carrier to receive such dual certification from IATA for environmental commitment and wildlife protection.


Leading the Way in Environmental Responsibility

The IEnvA certification, according to IATA, is an independent assessment program designed to evaluate the commitment of aviation stakeholders, including airlines, airports, cargo handling facilities, freight forwarders, and ramp handlers, to continuous improvement in their environmental and sustainability performance.

The IWT program, aimed at curbing illegal air transportation of endangered wildlife, fosters collaboration among airlines, airports, postal services, and government entities.

United for Wildlife

As part of this international effort, RAM joined the United for Wildlife Taskforce and endorsed the Buckingham Palace Declaration on April 25, 2023.

“The dual IATA certification confirms RAM’s strong commitment to environmental responsibility and action.”

Abdelhamid Addou, CEO of RAM.

In 2022, IATA expanded its Environmental Assessment Certification to include airports and ground service providers (GSPs), furthering its commitment to a sustainable future for air transport.
