Today’s Sustainability Matters is brought to you by Air New Zealand
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.
