Opfikon, Switzerland, 2021-Aug-18 — /Travel PR News/ — Flughafen Zürich AG is becoming a member of the United Nations Global Compact, the global network for corporate responsibility. By doing so, it is undertaking to uphold the ten Global Compact principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption.
For many years already, the airport operator has been setting itself sustainability goals, whether in relation to environmental protection or social responsibility. In 2019, for example, the company resolved to target “net zero carbon” by 2050. By joining the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the United Nations Global Compact, Flughafen Zürich AG is reinforcing its commitment to sustainable corporate development within its direct sphere of influence.
Joining the Global Compact is the next logical step in our sustainability strategy for Flughafen Zürich AG and its subsidiaries.
