PRESS RELEASE

September 21, 2015: Air New Zealand has launched a 'Sustainability Framework' to help supercharge New Zealand's success. The economic, social, and environmental pillars of the framework are supported by six key focus areas – the airline's people; the communities it operates within; carbon, nature and science; tourism and trade and enterprise.

Airline CEO said Christopher Luxon said: "We see the success of our business as being inextricably linked to the success of our country – Air New Zealand needs a strong and prosperous New Zealand and in turn, New Zealand needs a successful and thriving national airline.

"Given the significance of this business to New Zealand we have signed ourselves up to a mission and purpose bigger than ourselves – that is to supercharge New Zealand's success – socially, environmentally and economically."

Luxon said Air New Zealand recognizes that to be successful in its sustainability journey the airline requires advice from global experts. It has formed a Sustainability Advisory Panel made up of New Zealand and international experts with specialist knowledge. They are:

  • Sir Jonathon Porritt, co-founder and director, Forum for the Future (United Kingdom)
  • Dame Anne Salmond, New Zealand anthropologist, writer and distinguished professor of Maori Studies, University of Auckland (New Zealand)
  • Rob Fenwick CNZM, entrepreneur, director and conservationist (New Zealand)
  • Derek Handley, social entrepreneur, founder of Aera Foundation (New Zealand)
  • Suzanne Hunt, founder and president, HuntGreen LLC and biofuels expert (United States)
  • Brian Pearce, chief economist, International Air Transport Association (Switzerland)

Luxon and Air New Zealand's chief Flight Operations and Safety Officer, Captain David Morgan, who has responsibility for sustainability at the airline, also sit on the panel.

Porritt emphasized how important it is to see a large New Zealand company take sustainability seriously, both for the company itself and for the New Zealand economy as a whole. "We've been able to convene a group of people with enormous expertise in different areas of the sustainability agenda. What excites us is the opportunity to support Air New Zealand in its goal of becoming one of the world's most sustainable airlines."

Luxon said the actions to be delivered under the sustainability framework have been driven in part by insights gleaned from its staff and customers.

"Earlier this year we conducted a significant piece of research, asking how people thought Air New Zealand should 'supercharge New Zealand's success'. Key themes to emerge from the research were around enabling knowledge and inspiration as well as helping young Kiwis and emerging businesses to succeed. In the coming year we'll be launching several significant initiatives that support these themes."

Air New Zealand has also announced several new steps as part of its sustainability commitment. They include:

• A new Supplier Code of Conduct to ensure our suppliers support our commitment to advance social, environmental and ethical sourcing, by meeting minimum standards and commit to continuous improvement.

• Signing on as a participant of the UN Global Compact, the world's largest corporate responsibility initiative.

• The establishment of an annual speakers series to bring international thought leaders on social development, business growth and environmental issues to New Zealand to share knowledge in main centres and the regions.

• Transitioning Air New Zealand's fleet of road vehicles and ground equipment to 100 percent electric where feasible, with a tender due out to market next month.

• An extension of the airline's partnership with the country's Department of Conservation (DOC) to support biodiversity projects and conservation initiatives around New Zealand. The partnership is worth the equivalent of $1 million annually to DOC.

• An extension of the airline's sponsorship agreement with Antarctica New Zealand and the New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute. The airline has supported important climate science research being conducted in Antarctica since 2012. This new commitment will enable scientists to carry out a new climate change research project over the coming three years.

• The recycling of Air New Zealand crew uniforms which sees unbranded jackets sent to charitable organizations and other garments recycled and converted into various products such as carpet underlay, furniture, blankets and bedding felt. This programme is expected to save around 6.4 tonnes of material going to landfill each year.
