Transat Ranks High On Canada’s Best Corporate Citizens List Again
Transat A.T. Inc. has risen to
8th place on Corporate Knights’ annual list of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens
in Canada. The ranking recognizes organizations with outstanding records in
social engagement, environmental management and governance. For the 3rd year in a row, Transat is the only tour operator to
make the list.
“This year, we rank among the 10 leading Canadian organizations when it comes to sustainability. The credit for this prestigious distinction goes to all of Transat’s personnel, who have been supporting the organization’s efforts in this area for almost 10 years now,” said Jean-Marc Eustache, President & CEO, Transat. “We also share this recognition with our tourism partners, who continue to work hard with us to deliver the kinds of responsible products that are increasingly sought after by travellers,” he added.
Some of Transat’s efforts include; protecting children around the world, through its partnerships with SOS Children’s Villages and Beyond Borders ECPAT Canada; supporting heritage preservation efforts; raising customer awareness of sustainable tourism and encouraging its employees to take part in community outreach activities.
In terms of environmental stewardship, TS has taken frontline action to improve the energy efficiency of its fleet and its buildings. The company has continued to strengthen its fuel management program, one of the most ambitious in the industry. German NGO atmosfair has named TS Most Climate-Efficient North American Net Carrier each year since 2011.
