The intention of this Environmental Statement is to inform the public and other concerned parties of the environmental performance during 2014, as well as its evolution with regard to the previous year. This Environmental Statement is validated by virtue of the provisions of article 4 of the regulations (EC) no. 1221/2009 via the accredited environmental tester - AENOR, the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification.
Environmental management systems
As a result of the increasing interest of society for respect for the ENVIRONMENT, and getting ahead of all other Spanish Airline Companies, in January 2006 Air Europa obtained the ISO certification 14001:2015 of Environmental Management Systems; backed by its Quality Management System, certified since 2001.
The primary goal of this system is to minimise the environmental impact generated by all its activities, focusing on the decrease of consumption of natural resources (paper, water, electricity, fuel, etc.); on correct waste management, recovering, reusing and recycling; and on the optimisation of procedures to reduce both noise and CO2 emissions — the main greenhouse gas — of aircraft.
The latter is demonstrated by the huge investment made in technologies that reduce CO2 emissions, such as the installation of “winglets” on planes of the fleet B737-800, setup permitting. These devices placed at the tip of the wing implement aerodynamic efficiency to reduce CO2 emissions by 2.5% with respect to planes that do not have them.
Corporate social responsibility
Corporate social responsibility report
Corporate Social Responsibility at Air Europa is understood to be an effective management tool that contributes to the sustainable development of the society in which we live and work.
By way of the CSR Policy, we seek to integrate the vision, mission and values of corporate social responsibility as a cross-cutting element throughout all areas of the company.
