Swissport has released its 2020 Sustainability Report, outlining our progress towards more sustainable airport ground handling and air cargo services.
As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact since 2011, Swissport is committed to environmental care, the protection of human rights, the upholding of labour standards and the fight against bribery and corruption. As Eric Born explains in the CEO statement, “In all these fields of action, we once again intensified our efforts in 2019 and we remain committed toward further progress.”
For the first time, Swissport conducted a materiality analysis in which key stakeholders were asked to identify the sustainability topics that were particularly important to them. These insights helped us to align Swissport’s sustainability strategy even more effectively with stakeholder expectations.
Perth-based Recruitment Coordinator Cassandra Agenson was featured in the document, sharing her thoughts on the skills and behaviours critical for health and safety at work and how they’re assessed at the selection stage.
