Air New ZealandAir New Zealand has taken out the Business Leadership category at the Green Ribbon Awards for its efforts in sustainability at a ceremony held at Parliament overnight.

 

 

The airline was assessed by judges across a range of criteria including environmental benefits delivered, results achieved, innovation, awareness and education.

 

 

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says sustainability is integral to how the airline does business.

 

 

“It’s been almost a year since we formally launched our Sustainability Framework which sets out how we as a business will supercharge New Zealand’s success.  Right across our business we have been working hard to embed the programme and raise awareness of it with our people, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

 

 

“I am really proud of the work we are doing in this space and of the collective effort our people have made to embrace the programme and it’s fantastic to have these efforts recognised externally.”

 

 

The outputs of Air New Zealand’s Sustainability Framework are threefold – it aims to achieve economic growth, positive social impacts and reduced environmental impacts.  Work within the framework is focused under six key areas – the airline’s people; the communities it operates within; carbon; biodiversity and science; tourism; and trade and enterprise.

 

 

The Green Ribbon Awards have been held annually since 1990 and recognise the exceptional contributions of individuals, organisations and communities to protecting and improving the environment.
