Mexico City, Sept. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, presents its 2015-2016 Sustainability Report centered on initiatives that demonstrate its commitment not only to provide the best air connectivity, but also translate into ties between individuals who can collectively generate a sustainable environment and make Mexico a better country.

The airline has created four pillars to work on these efforts including sustainability, society, volunteers, and ethics and integrity, which represent the foundation for Aeromexico’s Corporate Social Responsibility principles. In the words of Aeromexico’s CEO, Andrés Conesa “They not only contribute to improving the environment but also encourage inclusion and diversity in all our value chains.”

The results presented include the “Vuela Verde” (Fly Green) program that seeks to mitigate the impact produced by greenhouse gas emissions. This program offers the carrier’s customers, the opportunity to donate when booking their travel plans at The amount collected from the donations is used to purchase carbon credits every year to finance the highest quality Mexican projects listed on the Mexican Carbon Platform (MEXICO2).

In addition, the carrier’s fleet renewal activities confirm the airline’s commitment to the environment, as the company added 13 Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners to its fleet during this period. The Dreamliner is considered the most modern aircraft in the sky, with 23% lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and up to 60% of reduced noise levels.

On the other hand, Aeromexico also seeks to involve all employees in the construction of a participative society and has a volunteer program where employees have invested more than 2,000 hours helping different foundations.

In addition to these actions, the carrier supported 38 domestic and international civil society organizations with airplane tickets during the period, benefiting more than three million people in terms of education, health, arts and culture, the environment, and diversity and inclusion.

Aeromexico also shared the progress made in terms of corporate social responsibility in the first half of 2017. The airline’s agenda is focused on maintaining its diversified projects, so it is currently working on the development of partnerships with government agencies, such as the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) to join the fight against trafficking in persons. Aeromexico also assists Mexico’s Federal Environmental Prosecutor (PROFEPA) in protecting biodiversity across the nation and stopping illegal trade with endangered wildlife and plant species.

Along these same lines, during the IATA Annual General Meeting held in Cancun in June this year, Aeromexico was the first airline in Latin America to sign the Buckingham Palace Declaration to adopt a zero-tolerance policy for trafficking and transportation of illegal wildlife and their product. The airline also received the IATA Environmental Assessment Program (IEnvA) certificate that validates sustainability in all the company’s operations and activities.

Today, Aeromexico prides itself on being a socially responsible company and a role model for the domestic airline industry. Mexico’s global airline implements best practices to address the needs of the present by safeguarding the future’s resources and gives wings to the world to make it a more sustainable place.
