10th Nov, 2015

AIR FRANCE KLM has retained its position at the top of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), as the world’s most sustainable airline, for the 11th year in a row. The DJSI is the most important international index measuring companies’ sustainable business performance.

For no less than seven years, AIR FRANCE KLM has also occupied first place as Industry Group Leader in the category Transportation. This covers air, rail, road and sea transportation, as well as airports.

To integrate sustainability in its business and operations, the Group works alongside all of its stakeholder groups on four key priorities:

  • environment
  • customer experience
  • responsible human resources
  • local development
