Acting responsibly is at the heart of all we do.
We believe that sustainability and corporate social responsibility can make a positive difference for our people, our industry, broader society, and the environment.
In 2021, we became a certified CarbonNeutral® company ahead of industry milestones. We continue our journey to mitigate our environmental impacts under our award-winning Planet+ program, defining, measuring, and reducing our emissions wherever in the world we operate, and complimenting reduction with carbon offsetting initiatives that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our global presence enables our business and our employees to support the communities where we operate. Through CSR programs, local community activities, and employee volunteer days, we focus on supporting education, health, and economic empowerment for students and disadvantaged groups.
Our solutions can help airlines and airports reduce carbon emissions at each stage of operations and contribute to carbon neutral growth. We are committed to collaborating with the industry on sustainable aviation initiatives.
Our Planet+ program has been recognized by the United Nations as an outstanding example of Sustainable Development Goal Good Practices, and we are the proud recipient of the 2021 award for Most Sustainable Company in the Aviation Communication Technology Industry from World Finance.
