Unum signs up to Green Cabin Alliance

Business class seating manufacturer Unum Aircraft Seating is joining the Green Cabin Alliance – its first seating manufacturer member – as a further commitment to sustainable design and manufacturing.

Founded in 2022, the Green Cabin Alliance aims to decarbonise the industry by bringing together like-minded organisations involved in the design, manufacture, usage and disposal of parts and products for aircraft cabins and identifying strategies to sustainably operate.

Elina Kopola, founder of the Green Cabin Alliance, said: “We recognise Unum’s commitment to local, sustainable manufacturing practices, and we believe the company to be an example of best practice in aviation. As an early adopter of the alliance, Unum’s input will be hugely valuable as we shape guidelines and educate the wider industry on the impact decarbonising the aircraft cabin can have on an airline’s overall carbon footprint.”

Chris Brady, CEO of Unum, says: “Aligning ourselves with the Green Cabin Alliance reinforces our sustainable mindset, something we are incredibly serious about. We must all do something to formalise, inform and grow our plans for sustainability and the alliance is pushing forward with all these objectives. Join now!”

As part of the company’s commitment to sustainable practices across the product lifecycle, Unum has developed a part marking system detailing end of life recycling details.
