Corporate Responsibility Strategy
Malta International Airport approaches corporate responsibility through a dual pronged strategy which aims to achieve two complementary objectives – to measure, monitor and manage the company’s positive and negative impacts; as well as to channel external investments through our not-for-profit Malta Airport Foundation.
Our first objective concerns managing the company’s influence on its operating environment and falls under the remit of the CR Committee. This has been addressed partly through the implementation of annual sustainability reporting which adheres to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards.
The Malta Airport Foundation is independent of the airport and was set up to increase the transparency and focus of the airport’s CR investments. It has already been instrumental in implementing and administering initiatives, which enhance the local environment and Malta’s tourism product for the benefit of both tourists and locals alike.
Together, these initiatives enhance transparency and accountability in our corporate responsability efforts. The rationale for these measures includes, but is not limited to, the notion that reducing or removing our negative impacts and conversely enhancing or introducing positive ones contributes to the sustainability of the airport, and the tourism industry at large.
