IDC
As IDC, we acknowledge our overarching role as custodian of the 14 groups of islands and atolls entrusted into our care by the Government of Seychelles. We are highly conscious of the fact that the environment is the most valuable asset of these far corners of our territory and the company is committed to doing its upmost to safeguard it. 

We therefore pledge to set up clean energy alternatives to the fuel powered generators on all these islands, so as to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of IDC’s operations and thereby decrease the attendant hydrocarbon pollution to almost zero. It should also be mentioned that these measures will minimize the obvious risks associated with the transportation of fuel to the islands. 

The first steps towards achieving this pledge has already been made and 3 islands already function on renewable energy, while the fourth, Desroches, will go 90% solar at the end of June 2021. By December 2022, solar power plants will meet 95% of all the energy requirements for the 14 islands.
Zil Air
At Zil Air protecting the environment and providing support to green eco- warriors and doers is at the core of our belief as a company. Without a pristine environment there would not be much to look forward to, let alone upkeep the magic the Seychelles afford!

Over the years we have as with many companies invested in greener solutions such as PV to power 50% of our needs, introduced internal protocols to see waste reduction and better management of resources and a shift to use more and more bio degradable products and chemicals for both domestic and aircraft applications. Effective management and disposal of hazardous products is nothing new to modern aviation protocols and at Zil Air we strive hard to ensure compliance at all levels.

Besides the typical good practices that we have become accustomed to and continue to strive to implement as technologies affords us more opportunities, Zil Air has bigger plans to ensure a long term sustainable approach to its operations and offerings. Easier said than done for aviation companies, but we continue to network and find greener solutions for our tomorrow.

Our choice of suppliers, partners and equipment is testimony to that will and we are a firm believer that our quest to fly greener is a matter of time.

Till then let it be “more than just a flight’’ as with Zil Air one will come to find a solid greener partner for the future.
