Air France-KLM assesses its extra-financial performance on a regular basis through the ratings of RobecoSAM (DJSI), Ecovadis, CDP, Vigeo Eiris, MSCI, Sustainalytics and ISS-ESG.
In 2021, for the seventeenth year running, Air France-KLM figured in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI World and DJSI Europe) and, for the second consecutive year, the Ecovadis sustainability rating agency awarded the Air France-KLM Group the Platinum Medal while CDP awarded the Air France-KLM Group a score of C for the Climate Change rating questionnaire.
Furthermore, in 2021, to objectify its ESG performance and improve its strategy and practices, Air France-KLM proactively requested an independent ESG rating from Standard and Poor’s, becoming the first airline group to be evaluated through a requested ESG rating. Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings thus assigned to Air France-KLM an ESG score of 64/100. With this rating, the Group is well positioned among the players in the airline industry with regard to the management of its significant exposure to environmental challenges.
S&P underlined that Air France-KLM was well prepared to manage the ESG risks faced by airlines in the short and medium term.
