Our commitment to the Environment
We realize that fighting climate change and adapting to its effects is one of the main challenges facing society, and our ambition is to improve the company's resilience to the changing environment by adhering to the principles set out in the Global Compact and the SDGs, and by actively participating in reducing the social divide and committing to innovation, equal opportunities and decent work.
These circumstances have directly affected the company's environmental results, with a reduction in the consumption of materials, emissions and waste generated in absolute terms, but with an increase in the per employee and per passenger ratios.
Air Europa's Environmental Declaration is regarded as an effective management tool that contributes to the sustainable development of the society in which we live and work.
Our goal with the Sustainability Report is to integrate the vision, mission and values of corporate social responsibility as a company-wide element in every area of the organization. It covers all of Air Europa's activities, taking into account the following three major factors: economic, social and environmental, with the aim of promoting responsible behavior and regulatory compliance.
By integrating the corresponding Management Systems that Air Europa has, we are better able to meet our commitment to society and the environment.
EUROPEAN ECO-MANAGEMENT AND AUDIT SCHEME (EMAS)
In 2012, Air Europa was EMAS certified. This verification confirms that the company complies with the European Management and Audit Regulation, which seeks to improve the environmental performance of organizations in every sector. Since then, Air Europa has carried out a large number of projects in collaboration with the leading European and American air traffic control centers in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions.
The Environmental Declaration's goal is to inform the public and other stakeholders of the company's environmental performance in 2021, as well as its progress over the last three years. This Environmental Declaration is validated by virtue of the provisions of Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No. 1221/2009, as amended by Regulation (EU) 2017/1505 and Regulation (EU) 2018/2026, through the accredited environmental verifier AENOR, the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification.
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (ISO 14001:2015)
In response to society's growing concern for the environment, and before any other Spanish airline, Air Europa's Environmental Management System was ISO 2006:14001 certified in January 2015, relying upon its Integrated Management System, which was certified in 2001. Ever since, our Environmental Management System has been certified as per the ISO 14001:2015 standard every year by the environmental verifier, AENOR (Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification).
The main goal of this system is to minimize the environmental impact resulting from all the company's activities by focusing on reducing the consumption of natural resources (paper, water, electricity, fuel, etc.), the proper management of waste through its recovery, reuse and recycling, and optimizing procedures to reduce both noise and CO2 emissions, the main greenhouse gas produced by aircraft.
