Etihad partners CSR scheme
Etihad Airways has become a member of ‘Business in the Community’ (BITC), an organisation that will support the implementation of the Abu Dhabi-based airline’s sustainability strategy and provide access to best practice in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Etihad, which supports and manages a number of global CSR projects, will work with BITC to define further how it can enhance its responsibility in the workplace, marketplace, environment, and the community.
Anne Tullis, Etihad Airways’ Head of CSR and Sustainability, said; “Etihad’s corporate social responsibility program has expanded considerably in recent years along with our commitment to a CSR policy and plan that is wholly embedded in our business, and in line with our role as a major company in Abu Dhabi.
“We will launch a new program this quarter which integrates the many existing initiatives and activities already in place, and believe that access to the resources and expertise available through BITC and the more established companies and markets will help us fill in the gaps and make sure we’re implementing best practice on our sustainability journey.”
BITC is one of the Prince of Wales’ charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which Prince Charles is president. It works through a network of partners worldwide and has 28 years’ experience of working with communities in greatest need.
Stephen Howard, CEO of BITC, said; “I’m delighted to welcome Etihad Airways into membership of Business in the Community. The sustained commitment of companies to greater leadership in the field of responsible business has never been more important.
“That’s why we’re here, to help companies identify where they can have most impact -positively -for people and the planet. I look forward to working with Etihad Airways on its responsible business journey.”
