Leaders in Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility is a central feature of KLM’s pioneering position in international aviation. KLM is not only concerned with healthy commercial profits. It is also committed to a sustainable society and care for the environment, both at home and abroad. To arrive at the best possible interpretation of Corporate Social Responsibility, KLM is in constant dialogue with interested parties at all levels, in a range of contexts, regional, national international.
KLM Takes Care
We are thoroughly aware of our impact on the environment and society. Of course, want to limit it as much as possible, but we are aiming to go much farther. KLM is not only looking for the best solutions to achieve this, but we also want to make a proactive contribution to society. So we welcome anyone with a good idea. At the KLM Takes Care website you can find examples of KLM’s efforts to achieve sustainable aviation. Visitors can also post ideas and comments on this website. You will see the logo more and more often on the products and services KLM offers its passengers.
Universal Principles, Ethical and Honest Actions
KLM’s policy conforms to the universal principles laid out in the United Nations Global Compact initiative of 1999. By signing the Compact, KLM has demonstrated that it will respect human rights and labour conditions, combat corruption, and minimise its impact on the environment. KLM views the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals as guiding principles for its policy.
Ambitious and Successful
KLM and Air France together operate an ambitious CSR policy and publish a joint Sustainability Report, which is available digitally on the KLM Takes Care platform under the heading White Papers & Reports (klmtakescare.com).
We are proud to have ranked at the top of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index together with Air France for 12 consecutive years, in the airline sector. In 2016, after seven years as Industry Group leader in the Transport category, we were surpassed by PostNL.
