Open Jaw

Air Canada has released the 2014 edition of Citizens of the World, the airline’s 4th corporate sustainability report.

 

The document details AC’s performance during 2014 in 4 areas of sustainability: safety; the environment; employee well-being and community involvement. For the 1st time, the airline retained a 3rd party auditor to independently verify the data.

 

Highlights of the 2014 report include:

 

  • Lost Time Injuries declined 11.4% from the previous year, the 4th straight year of decline, and total injuries were down 10% from a year ago.
  • Successful completion of the biennial IATA Operational safety audit (IOSA).
  • More than 11,000 tonnes of fuel or 35,229 tonnes of CO2 (equivalent) were saved through fuel efficiency initiatives.
  • $445 million was contributed to company pension plans.
  • The Air Canada Foundation raised $1.4 million, a 45% increase from 2013.

 

“Air Canada has long demonstrated corporate social responsibility through our commitment to safety, our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint, by ensuring the well-being of our employees and in giving back to our communities,” said CEO Calin Rovinescu.

 

“But beyond this, we also want to make it easier for stakeholders to objectively evaluate our company in this area. Citizens of the World does this by reporting on our sustainability activities during the year and making commitments for the next year that we will duly report on.”
