As a well-known and respected senior executive in the airline industry, David “Dave” Pflieger most recently assisted in the successful restructuring, turnaround, and sale of Larry Ellison’s airline, Hawaii Island Air, where Dave was president and CEO of the company.
Earlier in his career, Dave was a founding officer at Virgin America Airlines where he was instrumental in taking it from a start-up to a flourishing and award-winning airline. During his time at Virgin, David Pflieger also helped Virgin America become the first company of its kind to join The Climate Registry (TCR).
TCR is working towards a greener future for our planet by streamlining the process of greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting for organizations in both the United States and Canada. Companies which add their names to the registry join more than 1,000 other members who are looking to minimize their carbon footprints and help put an end to global warming. All TCR members gain access to the organization’s GHG reporting platform, which they can use to measure and announce the emissions that they produce in any given year. Available through the cloud, this platform also allows them to set emissions targets so that they can better measure and manage their carbon outputs.
To further assist its members in the reporting process, TCR offers online training programs and other web-based tools to teach companies about proper reporting methods. Members of TCR also gain the unique opportunity to network with other companies who have also taken a pledge to reducing their GHG emissions. To this end, the organization regularly hosts an array of events, including workshops and its Climate Leadership Conference.
