Air New Zealand named in FTSE4Good Index Series
Air New Zealand has been named in the FTSE4Good Index Series for the second consecutive year.
The global series is made up of 14 indexes and has been designed in response to growing interest in socially responsible investment around the world.
To be included in the series, organisations are assessed across 300 data points and must support human rights, have good relationships with stakeholders, be making progress to become environmentally sustainable, ensure good labour standards (both internally and with suppliers), and fight bribery and corruption.
Air New Zealand Head of Sustainability Lisa Daniell says it’s terrific for the airline to be recognised in this way.
“We continue to invest considerably in our sustainability programme, so it’s great to have this work acknowledged and globally benchmarked,” says Ms Daniell.
The FTSE4Good Index Series includes more than 15 benchmarks, based on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings of more than 4,000 securities in 47 Developed and Emerging markets.
