Air Canada said it has released the 2013 edition of Citizens of the World, the airline´s third corporate sustainability report.
The document evaluates Air Canada´s performance during 2013 in four key areas of sustainability: safety, the environment, the well-being of employees, and the company´s community involvement.
The report is available at www.aircanada.com/csr. It was prepared in accordance with principles of the Global Reporting Initiative, an internationally recognized standard for sustainability reporting. The report is framed around the findings of an extensive stakeholder survey undertaken to identify areas of most concern with respect to sustainability. It also contains a discussion of governance practices at Air Canada and tables of data quantifying the results of our sustainability activities.
Highlights of 2013 include completion of the Transport Canada Safety Management System Audit; continued support for the development of alternative, more environmentally friendly fuels; a 21 per cent reduction in lost time injuries; and a total of approximately USD6.5m in community investments including contributions from the Air Canada Foundation to a range of charitable causes in the form of in-kind donations and cash.
