Aelia Duty Free opens its first eco-responsible store at Geneva airport

Aelia Duty Free's first eco-responsible store was inaugurated on 3 March 2022 at Geneva airport in Switzerland. This change in the Aelia Duty Free concept falls within the framework of the opening of Geneva airport's new energy efficient terminal, which sets the standard in terms of sustainability for the airport industry.

This new concept, devised by the teams at Lagardère Travel Retail Switzerland and Duty Free Global, was put together in close collaboration and with the full support of the airport's retail department.

The project was guided by the aim of incorporating environmental responsibility into all aspects of the Aelia
Duty Free concept by means of:

  • a layout designed to improve the carbon footprint and lifecycle of furnishings;
  • eco-responsible materials fitting in with the new terminal's architecture;
  • a wide range of products bearing the in-house We Care, We Do eco-responsible label and meeting exacting ethical and environmental criteria.

In addition, a partnership has been formed with the UN, whose 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were the focus of a fun, interactive pop-up open to passengers located next to the new eco-responsible store.

This pilot store symbolises Lagardère Travel Retail's commitment to CSR and, thanks to Lagardère Travel Retail Switzerland, forms part of an innovative business project.
