British Airways

British Airways has been voted the least environmentally friendly brand according to a Marketing Week survey, with American Airlines, Ryanair and easyJet following close behind. The online survey asked 1,132 adults to name the brands they thought were the most friendly and unfriendly towards the environment from a list that included a diverse range of organizations including airlines, fuel companies, supermarkets, car manufacturers, and cosmetic companies. But despite reminders from the aviation industry that air travel accounts for just 1.6% of global CO2 emissions - road transport being a far larger offender - the airlines were all high in the unfriendly list, with fuel giant Texaco just 10th on the list, Shell 11th, Esso 15th and BP in the 'friendly' category. Even British Nuclear Fuels faired better at number 13. Second on the list of unfriendly brands was American Airlines, which Smith put down to what he termed "the George Bush effect," and the country's lackadaisical approach to reducing emissions.
