Corporate Sustainability

A message from Michael Rousseau, President and Chief Executive Officer

I am pleased to introduce Air Canada’s 2020 Sustainability Report, outlining our efforts and objectives aligned with our sustainability mission statement. This report provides a holistic view of our efforts, governance and management approaches, which are articulated through three sustainability pillars: Our Business, Our People, and Our Planet.

Sustainability is often portrayed by reference to future, yet unrealized benefits. However, as I reflect on last year’s extreme turbulence, our commitment and continuing progress toward sustainability helped allow Air Canada and its people to respond to this uncertain and challenging environment. It accelerated innovation and other sustainability initiatives.

You can access the full report using the QR code on this page, or by visiting  We invite you to follow us online through social media on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram where you will find sustainability announcements, stories and updates.

Thank you for your continued trust in Air Canada.
