Our approach to sustainability

Icelandair supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and we have chosen to use them as a tool to structure our strategic sustainability agenda.

These goals have become a universal language of governments and businesses to work towards a more sustainable future.

Our responsibility model

Based on information gathered from dialogue with key stakeholders, with involvement from across Icelandair, we have chosen four of the SDGs as our strategic focus.

As demonstrated in the image above these are the SDGs for decent work and economic growth (#8), climate action (#13), responsible consumption and production (#12) and gender equality (#5).

These goals represent the areas where the Company considers it can have the most impact and best create shared value, and thereby contribute to a more sustainable future.

Specific targets for the Company’s key sustainability focus areas, and the associated action plans, were revised in 2021 given the unprecedented circumstances.
