Auckland Airport continues to be a leading sustainable organisation, retaining their inclusion on the FTSE4Good Index Series for the fifth year in a row.
The FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to objectively measure the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards. As a key global benchmarking index, Auckland Airport’s continued inclusion on the FTSE4Good Index provides further confirmation that it is an impressive performer in the sustainability field.
Martin Fryer, Auckland Airport’s Sustainability and Environmental Manager, says the inclusion on the Index for the fifth year is a fantastic achievement that the company is very proud of. “We work very hard at Auckland Airport to maintain our position at the forefront of sustainability practices in New Zealand and we also pride ourselves on our commitment to striving for continual improvement in performance.”
“This is the fifth year we have been included in this Index and over that time we have successfully implemented our first five year sustainability plan. Last year, following wide consultation with our stakeholders, we produced a new plan with long-term targets for the year 2020 around our material issues such as energy, water and waste and we are very excited to be moving into this new phase of our sustainability planning,” continues Mr Fryer.
“Our repeated inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index is independent verification that our approach to sustainability is at best practice and enables us to benchmark our social, environmental and governance performance.”
The inclusion on the FTSE4Good Index follows on from Auckland Airport’s recent success at the Asia Pacific Enterprise Leadership Awards where the company received an EcoAdvocate Award for their commitment to environmental sustainability and their implementation of a comprehensive greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan.
