ASL’s ESG policy was introduced to further strengthen the Group’s unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability, our people and social commitments and operating safely and responsibly in full compliance as promoted and protected by both our Safer Skies and Governance policies and procedures.
Care, Compassion and Compliance. ASL is committed to compliance and governance, to the safety and security of our staff, to our customers, the communities we serve and act in the best interests of our environment and our planet.
ASL Aviation Holdings ESG activities and policies reflect the Group’s awareness of its responsibilities to people and the planet. Aviation is vital to global social and economic wellbeing and will continue to advance essential connectivity between countries, economies, people and families. However, ASL is mindful that aviation, while fundamental, must also be sustainable, and we aim to promote and aspire to this sustainability through our ESG commitments.
At ASL we monitor and measure our carbon emissions and our environmental sustainability activities to ensure our progress on our path to net-zero emissions. These measurements and activities are summarised in our ESG Snapshots.

The proposed package aims to bring EU legislation in line with the 2030 goal.

ASL Aviation Holdings has endorsed both the Toulouse Declaration and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Fly Net-Zero programme.
In February 2022, ASL Aviation Holdings formally endorsed the ‘Toulouse Declaration’ which followed an aviation summit hosted by the French Presidency of the European Union. This declaration was widely endorsed by airline and airport representative associations and further commits the aviation industry to meeting carbon emissions reduction targets by 2030 and to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.
