A tailored approach to unique challenges

At the heart of our program lie three essential standards:

Sustainable Procurement: We recognize the critical role procurement plays in driving sustainability across the aviation sector. Our standard equips organizations with strategies to source ethically, minimize environmental impact, and support local communities.

Social Responsibility: Aviation thrives on connectivity, but it must also prioritize its responsibility to society. Our standard ensures that organizations uphold ethical labor practices, promote diversity and inclusion, and engage meaningfully with local communities.

Tracking Sustainability Performance: Measuring and monitoring is the key to understanding and improving your organizational performance. Our standard empowers organizations to accurately measure and track their sustainability performance across expertly selected KPIs that cover the full ESG spectrum and align with prominent ESG Raters and Reporting Frameworks, fostering awareness and continuous improvement and preparing your organization to comply with external reporting and disclosure requirements.
