Air Canada Issues 2012 Corporate Sustainability Report
Air Canada has released Citizens of the World, its second corporate sustainability report. The document evaluates Air Canada's performance during 2012 in four key areas of sustainability: safety, the environment, the well-being of employees, and the company's community involvement.
Air Canada's 2012 corporate sustainability report is available at www.aircanada.com/csr. The report is framed around the findings of an extensive stakeholder survey undertaken to identify areas of most concern with respect to sustainability. Highlights of the 2012 report include:
- completion of our biennial IATA Operational Safety Audit with a result of "no findings";
- operating two biofuel flights and taking steps to save an estimated 54 million litres of fuel during the year;
- introducing an internal portal, HR Connex, to make human resources programs and policies more accessible and easier to use for Air Canada's 27,000 employees;
- creating the Air Canada Foundation to support charitable causes within communities in the form of in-kind donations and cash.
