A citizen of the world
Air Canada has unveiled its 2014 Citizens of the World corporate sustainability report, providing an update on its performance during 2014 in four key areas – safety, the environment, employee well-being and community involvement.
The 2014 report (the fourth such report) marks the first time that Air Canada has used a third-party auditor to independently verify the company’s disclosure.
Air Canada’s president and CEO, Calin Rovinescu observed: “Air Canada has long demonstrated corporate social responsibility through our commitment to safety, our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint, by ensuring the well-being of our employees and in giving back to our communities.”
And Rovinescu continued: “But beyond this, we also want to make it easier for stakeholders to objectively evaluate our company in this area. Citizens of the World does this by reporting on our sustainability activities during the year and making commitments for the next year that we will duly report on.”
Rovinescu noted that: “This is our fourth edition of Citizens of the World, and each year we have built upon previous reports to provide a fuller narrative and a more quantified description of our activities. To take our sustainability reporting a step further, for the first time this year we also obtained third party assurance on select indicators to better validate the information contained in the report. As a result, more comprehensively than ever, Citizens of the World 2014 informs our stakeholders and gives them a means to evaluate our sustainability performance.”
