Preserving the environment has always been a concern of aircraft manufacturer ATR, and its machines are designed and built with this in mind.
To this effect, ATR holds ISO 14001 environmental management certification, which attests to the manufacturer's compliance with environmental standards at every stage of the lifecycle of its aircraft: design, purchasing of parts and equipment, painting, operation of the aircraft by airlines, technical and operational support, etc.
Furthermore, ATR aircraft are designed to produce minimal noise pollution and environmental impact.
Their hi-tech propulsion system means they offer a large number of improvements in terms of noise and vibrations, resulting in reduced noise pollution.
Moreover, because of their design, ATRs have less impact on the greenhouse effect than most other means of transport. Turboprops emit approximately 20% less CO2 per passenger-kilometre than the latest regional jets
