The Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI)*, the main international index evaluating companies on their performance in terms of sustainable development, has, for the 9th consecutive year, ranked Air France-KLM leader of the “Airlines” industry.
Moreover, for the fifth year running, Air France-KLM is ranked leader of the broader “Transport” category, covering air, rail, sea and road transport as well as airport activities.
In this way Air France-KLM perpetuates the ranking at the 24 most sustainable companies in the world.
Air France-KLM is concentrating on four main issues: reducing its environmental footprint, integrating sustainable development into its products and services, promoting a responsible human resources policy and contributing to the territories where the Group operates.
Among the innovating initiatives taken recently, KLM has operated long-haul flights using sustainable biofuel and both airlines have introduced a uniform recycling scheme. Air France has also continued investing in making its aircraft lighter, thus reducing its environmental impact.
The Air France-KLM group has been part of the DJSI since 2005 and is also integrated in the non-financial indexes Vigeo, ASPI, ESI Excellence and FTSE4Good.
