airBaltic Supervisory Board Approves Strategic Sustainability Priorities

Following commitments of the aviation industry, its professional organizations and the European Union towards comprehensive implementation of sustainability operations and goals, the Supervisory Board of the Latvian airline airBaltic has approved the company’s strategic environmental, social and governance sustainability priorities.

Among them, a commitment on reaching carbon neutrality by 2050 has been adopted.

Martin Gauss, President and CEO of airBaltic: “Sustainability has always been an integral part of airBaltic business and culture.

“Undoubtedly, it is not only about clean air, but brings the focus to areas of environment, economics, technologies, corporate governance and social life.

“Our vision sees the airline becoming a sustainable carrier in the EU aviation market, while maintaining a continuous growth path and innovative improvement of passenger experience, and at the same time – developing the Baltics as one of the key European business centers.

“Furthermore, our values – We deliver. We care. We grow. – state sustainability at the core of all the ways we work – how we do business and how we interact with people.”

Zita Barānova, Head of Sustainability at airBaltic: “Sustainability is never a stand-alone strategy, but something that companies prove with their actions.

“Many examples at airBaltic reflect that – for instance, choosing the most modern and green aircraft Airbus A220-300, optimizing operations and using sustainable aviation fuel, gradually moving to electric car park, and offsetting CO2 emissions, and many more.

“Now we are moving a step further – on combining already the existing and future contribution of sustainability actions to become carbon neutral in 2050.”
