The Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), the main international index evaluating companies on their performance in terms of sustainable development, has ranked Air France-KLM leader of the “Airlines” industry, for the 9th consecutive year.
For the fifth year running, Air France-KLM has also been ranked leader of the broader "Transport" category, covering air, rail, sea and road transport as well as airport activities, one of the 24 categories that include the 333 most sustainable companies.
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.
