Air New Zealand recognised for corporate social responsibility
The review, published by the Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, is the world’s largest ongoing study of CSR practices and trends and the only one of its type in Australia and New Zealand.
The review surveys employee perceptions of CSR priorities, practices and management capabilities within an organisation. The CSR Top 5 are the New Zealand companies with the strongest management capabilities for Corporate Social Responsibility.
Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says business has a unique responsibility to help strengthen society.
“Organisations cannot choose between growth and sustainability – we have to focus on both. That means there is a need for business models that will enable responsible, sustainable growth.
“While there is always more to do, we have been working hard to embed sustainability in our business through our Sustainability Framework, which is the way we map our commitment to a better New Zealand – for our people, our place and our economy, so it’s great to see our efforts recognised in this way.”
A key aim of the review is to provide organisations with an analysis of key CSR trends, enabling them to make evidence-based decisions that allow for positive change within their businesses.
