We re­cently re­leased our lat­est sus­tain­abil­ity re­port, which out­lines our progress against our sus­tain­abil­ity goals over the past year.

We’ve made good progress against some am­bi­tious tar­gets un­der each of our three sus­tain­abil­ity pil­lars (so­cial, eco­nomic and en­vi­ron­ment), in­clud­ing pre­vent­ing more than 15,000 tonnes of CO₂-e from en­ter­ing the at­mos­phere through com­bined op­er­a­tional ini­tia­tives, re­duc­ing plas­tic by nearly 55 mil­lion items across our net­work, and in­creas­ing the num­ber of women in se­nior leadership roles to 44 per­cent (up from 39 per­cent in 2018).

Ul­ti­mately, re­spond­ing to the cli­mate cri­sis re­mains our sin­gle big­gest sus­tain­abil­ity chal­lenge. We con­tinue to build ef­fi­cien­cies in our own op­er­a­tion, like switch­ing air­port ground equip­ment to elec­tric and in­vest­ing in more mod­ern, fuel ef­fi­cient air­craft to curb emis­sions. We’re also fo­cused on el­e­vat­ing our vol­un­tary cus­tomer car­bon off­set­ting pro­gramme, FlyNeu­tral. In the past year our cus­tomers around the world off­set more than 174,400 trips – or 50,000 tonnes of car­bon – up 34.5 per­cent on the year prior.
