Air France-KLM, responsible leader in the supersector Travel & Leisure for 2011


Air France-KLM has been recognized air transport leader for 2011 in the field of corporate social responsibility for the seventh time in a row and confirmed in the two Dow Jones Sustainability Index Indexes - DJSI World and DJSI Europe.


Thanks to its performance, the group is also leader of the entire “Transport and leisure” sector for the third time. This recognition is awarded to the 19 most sustainable companies worldwide, each in their own sector.


“This recognition of our commitment rewards the efforts made by everyone at Air France and KLM worldwide. It is an honour for us to receive this recognition” declared Pierre-Henri Gourgeon, CEO of Air France-KLM.


“Sustainability of a company is found in the right balance between People, Planet and Profit. The fact that we are working hard on this, is again recognised by our no. 1 position in the airline sector. We intend to continue to be a reference in terms of sustainable development in our sector” added Peter Hartman, President and CEO of KLM.

Aware of its corporate social responsibility, Air France-KLM has for many years been committed to reducing its environmental impact, to implement a responsible social policy, contribute to regional development, while offering its customers a quality service and innovative products. In 2010-11, the group has made progress in areas such as the development of sustainable biofuels, the implementation of recycling uniforms and meals trays served on board, as well as supporting several humanitarian projects.


Both the DJSI World and DJSI Europe indexes, references in the field of extra-financial indexes, select the leading companies every year in terms of social responsibility, following a review process conducted by the Swiss group SAM (Sustainable Asset Management Indexes GmbH). The Dow Jones Sustainability Index Index World groups 10% of the leading companies, among 2,500 international companies. 


The Air France-KLM group has been part of the DJSI since 2005 and is also part of the extra-financial indexes Aspi Eurozone, Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Global and FTSE4Good.
