Finnair has digitally published its annual corporate responsibility report.

Topics addressed include aviation’s role in society and business, the airline’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and how restructuring impacts on staff.

The publication is prepared according to guidelines established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and details and assesses the financial, environmental and social sustainability of the Finnish group’s activities in 2011.

Vice president of sustainable development Kati Ihamäki said: “Sustainability and corporate responsibility play into every aspect of Finnair’s business.

“This report shows how everyone at Finnair, from top management to customer-facing staff, plays an important role in building the company’s sustainable future.”

Finnair has reported on environmental sustainability since 1997 and became one of the first airlines to report according to GRI guidelines in 2008.

The GRI, formed with the support of the United Nations Environment Programme, is the most widely recognised international authority on sustainability reporting.
