The world is more interconnected than ever before, bringing a wealth of opportunities and new social challenges. At Airbus, we understand that our social responsibility is to go beyond making a profit for our shareholders. Our goal is to create shared value by stimulating socio-economic development, safeguarding communities, and prioritising community engagement projects related to education and disaster relief.
Improving quality of life in the communities in which we live and operate is an essential component of our corporate sustainability initiatives. To ensure we create shared value, we partner with governments, local communities and non-profit organisations (NGOs) to contribute to and sponsor projects that are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to tackle global issues like poverty, hunger, inequality, human rights and climate change.
Our 133,000 employees are dynamic, creative and motivated individuals who are passionate about making the world a better place. Every day, they volunteer their own time to support social and environmental initiatives that address real societal challenges. Approximately 5,000 Airbus employees are involved in nearly 100 volunteering initiatives around the world.
