Air New Zealand wins Delloite’s Sustainable Business Leadership award

By Rachelle Harry

Air New Zealand has been awarded the Sustainable Business Leadership award at Delloite’s Top 200 awards ceremony. The award recognises the airline’s leading efforts to operating in a more sustainable manner.

The judging panel considered “governance, leadership and accountability, long-term perspective and purpose, explicit integration of ESG (environment, social, governance) considerations and investments, and programmes and projects to support sustainable development” when choosing a winner.

Air New Zealand Head of Sustainability Lisa Daniell says the award reflects the airline’s commitment to sustainability right across the business. She commented: “We’re delighted to have received this award – it’s recognition of the hard work of more than 12,000 employees who are a huge driver of our sustainability agenda. While we still have a long way to go, sustainability principles are increasingly impacting our purchasing decisions, customer experience offerings and day-to-day operations.

“We don’t operate in a vacuum, so our partners and suppliers also play a really big role in helping us achieve our sustainability goals, for example when it comes to reducing waste and plastic. Of course, reducing our carbon footprint remains our single biggest challenge and our dedicated carbon reduction programme is helping to address this.”
