Athens International Airport - Sustainability Governance
AIA approaches sustainability in an integrated manner, across all aspects of its operation and development, implemented as a structured governance system and embedding international best practices with respect to planning, implementing, measuring and transparently reporting its non-financial performance. AIA acknowledges its role as a responsible company, for creating sustainable value for its stakeholders and for balancing its objectives across the perspectives of operational responsibility, environmental responsibility, corporate citizenship, employer's responsibility and sustainability governance.
The corporate Sustainability Policy is regularly revised, in order to reflect upon emerging sustainability trends and global standards. The Sustainability Policy makes provision for the annual Materiality Analysis and the resulting Action Plan, which is approved by AIA's senior management and communicated through the Annual & Sustainability Report.
Sustainability Policy acknowledges the UN Agenda 2030 and AIA's commitment to contribute to the attainment of the SDGs.
In line with the Airport Company's sustaining commitment to the United Nations Global Compact, AIA adopts and upholds the related sustainability principles for Human Rights, Labour Relations, Environmental Impact and Anti- Corruption. Furthermore, the Airport Company acknowledges the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Agenda 2030, contributing to the global sustainability effort. 
Regardless of size and industry, all companies can contribute to the achievement of the SDGs by carrying out business in a responsible manner, while pursuing opportunities to address societal and environmental challenges through innovation and collaboration. 
Global challenges – ranging from climate change, water and food crises, to poverty, conflict and inequality – drive the transformation of business models and the embedding of globally acknowledged values in everyday business. Hence, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be directly correlated with business activities. This is also the case for AIA, as the Airport Company's sustainability issues have a direct impact on most of the Goals.
