The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a global call to action to ensure a more sustainable future for people and the planet by 2030. At Airbus, we were among the first in our industry to formally adopt the SDGs as a framework for our social responsibility practices. This approach ensures we can help tackle key societal challenges.
Innovation is in our DNA. We develop zero-emission flight projects—from E-Fan X to urban air mobility—to help tackle aircraft CO2 emissions. We also help foster entrepreneurship and innovation in local communities to develop needs-based products and services.
We set ambitious goals to reduce our manufacturing footprint, promote conservation of resources and better manage the impact of our industrial operations. We also work closely with our suppliers to help them comply with our environmental and social commitments.
We contribute to safety, stability and prosperity worldwide by developing defence solutions that promote the rule of law, freedom and democratic values. Also, we seek to ensure that our business practices conform to applicable laws, regulations and ethical business principles.
We believe the key to progress is collaboration. This is why we team up with our industry peers, foreign governments and ministries, the humanitarian community, and many other global partners to support corporate sustainable development programmes and provide relief when disaster strikes.
