Its inaugural rating score was 16.0, reflecting “a strong performance across a broad range of ESG metrics”, based on a scale of 100–0, from highest to lowest risk, and putting it amongst the top 5% of its industry group for ESG performance.
Avolon chief executive Dómhnal Slattery commented: “Our inaugural ESG rating is an important milestone for Avolon, and our strong rating reflects our commitment to ESG and our rigorous risk management framework. At Avolon, operating responsibly as a business is central to our strategy, and is a source of trust for all of our stakeholders. Our low ESG risk rating reflects our commitment to sustainability, caring for the communities in which we operate, and delivering long-term value for our shareholders.”
Avolon became the launch customer for Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI) A330-300 freighter conversion programme in 2021 after signing a deal for 30 of the aircraft.
