In 2010, we developed our Sustainable Development Strategy. In 2012, we launched our vision for how this Strategy will be realised through 20 commitments, to be achieved by 2020.  These commitments encompassed the key operational areas of our business, right across our flights, catering services, ground fleet, offices, suppliers and the communities we fly to. This is the result of years of engagement with our key stakeholders: our employees, passengers, investors, the management, community neighbours, subject experts and academics.

In this report, we will communicate our performance by way of providing an update on the progress on these commitments. These will be represented on a three-colour scale, whereby:
Achieved = Achieved
On Plan = On plan
Off Plan = Off plan
