How Oscar Munoz Helped United Airlines Take Early Advantage in Sustainability
In his new book, Turnaround Time, former CEO shares how he helped start the process that allowed United to become a leader in sustainable aviation
I spoke with Oscar recently about his new book documenting his journey at United Airlines, and he shared a story about how he helped United Airlines be an early starter in sustainability.
Several United Airlines' sustainability initiatives have become industry-leading today - from its investment in eVTOL startup Archer to its appointment of a “Chief Trash Officer”.
“Do you believe there’s something going on regarding climate change on our planet?” Oscar asked.
Listeners on my podcast would remember my interview with current CEO Scott Kirby about sustainability. Oscar shed some light on how it all got started.
While many may think that Oscar's best legacy was hiring Scott Kirby as his successor at United Airlines, there's a lot more to the story. In his book, Turnaround Time, Oscar Munoz dives deep into each of the issues we discussed and more.
In fact, my full interview with Oscar with a much more detailed conversation will debut on on opening episode of Season 4 of my podcast, Sustainability In The Air.
