GOL has developed its own program for managing aircraft maintenance waste at its operational bases. Currently, eight bases are using the program to treat and dispose of 100% of their waste and another 18 are in the advanced implementation phase. The Company is also carrying out studies into extending the program to all the airports where it operates.

Also, since 2003, GOL has been dry cleaning the outside of its aircraft, using only 10% of the amount of water normally used in this procedure.
