SAS’ environmental management system encompasses all activities in SAS. The system focuses on activities around the main bases (Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and Helsinki), but also includes other geographical areas through follow-up programs and contracted services. SAS is one of a handful airlines certified according to ISO 14001 throughout the company.
The system is based on shared environmental and sustainability policies, the Code of Conduct, the UN Global Compact, airline operational standards and ISO 14001. It provides guidelines for a continuing cycle of planning, implementation and evaluation, as well as the improvement of processes and activities to meet operational and environmental targets.
SAS has a review process that also integrates environmental reports and the most important aspects of CSR in existing quality/security inspections. This is part of our endeavor to achieve constant improvement.
SAS was certified according to ISO 14001 in 2010.
ISO14001 in brief
ISO is a standards organization that works at international level. The aim of the ISO 14001 standard is to map out and reduce the company’s environmental impact, and to ensure that there is an efficient management system in place that also includes the business’s environmental activities.
