Sustainability

We have developed a sustainability strategy based on the UN's 17 World Goals, with a special focus on the five goals:


• 4, Quality education
• 9, Industry, innovation and infrastructure
• 12, Responsible consumption and production
• 13, Climate action
• 17, Partnerships

We have taken these five points as our starting point, because we believe that it is within these areas that we can make the biggest difference for Greenland and Greenlandic society.
Below you will be able to read more about what efforts we are making to achieve the goals of our strategy.

VM 4: Quality education

Over the last 60 years, Air Greenland has trained more than 1,000 people, as people, now part of the company and as people in other functions, where they contribute to the continued development of society.

VM 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Air Greenland ensures traffic throughout the country, all year round. When ships are unable to dock due to ice in the winter months, we are present with fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, to service all inhabited places we can land.

VM 12: Responsible consumption and production

At Air Greenland, we want to contribute to the development of sustainable tourism. This means sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.

VM 13: Climate action

At Air Greenland, we are very aware of the impact we have on the climate. We are always looking to make our production more climate-friendly, and with every new choice to be made, sustainability weighs heavily. This was also the case when we had to choose the type of helicopter that was to replace our fleet of B212s that have flown in Greenland since 1980. The choice fell on the EC155, which is a faster engine, with less fuel consumption.

VM 17: Partnerships

The Air Greenland Group is a significant player in the development of Greenlandic society. We want to take active responsibility for a positive societal development. We have the opportunity to do so due to our size and therefore we are in close cooperation and partnerships with local actors in Greenland, both from business, public authorities and voluntary organizations.
