“Pivotal moment”: AJW Group signs declaration of support for United Nations Global Compact

AJW Group has committed to implementing universal sustainability principles and to taking steps to support UN goals with its participation in the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest global corporate sustainability initiative.

The UNGC’s vision is to ‘mobilise a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want’. It has implemented a strategy to drive business awareness and action in support of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

To make this happen, it supports AJW Group in its continuing efforts to operate the business responsibly, aligning its strategies and operations with the UNGC’s ‘Ten Principles’ on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. It will take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.

AJW is committed to sustainable business practices and is participating in the UNGC as part of its efforts “to bring about a more earth and people-friendly aviation industry”.

By signing the declaration, AJW Group said it hoped others would follow suit, and “together industry stakeholders can unite for the good of the planet, its people, and its communities”.

Christopher Whiteside (pictured), chairman of AJW Group, commented: “Announcing our participation in the UN Global Contract is a pivotal moment for our company, one our founder would be proud of. This heralds a new era of commitment to sustainability as we fly towards our centenary in 2032.”
