Sustainability is an increasingly frequent theme in society and goes far beyond a concept. For Airswift, sustainability is the way to the future. It is action! That's why we encourage and promote initiatives in the economic, environmental, and social fields in our more than 60 offices worldwide.
We are committed to finding ways to reduce the impact of our work and recognize that all individuals, clients, and suppliers play a key role in reducing environmental impacts. The migration to a low carbon economy and more sustainable business models is no longer a choice but a requirement in large companies.
After all, sustainable development is good for the planet, good for people, and good for business. Because of that, we are excited to announce the next steps in our sustainability journey.
Historically, Airswift has evolved with the energy industry. Our goal is to continue this evolution as sustainability becomes more important to the planet and the future of energy. We operate our facilities with the necessary permits, approvals, laws, and regulations and continue to learn more and better ways to go beyond compliance.
We proactively take steps to reduce our carbon footprints, such as projects of waste reduction, energy consumption, and travel requirements. During Earth Week, Airswift holds a company-wide donation event. Airswift employees are asked to bring in things they no longer want, like clothes, shoes, household items, and more. Rather than throwing them away, we donate these items to a local charity organization.
Beyond investment, we also offer our time and hands to worthwhile projects like food banks, blood drives, fundraisers, hospitals, cancer care facilities, higher learning, and more.
Relay For Life
Airswift supports Relay For Life, the world’s largest fundraising event and movement to fight every cancer in every community. We are passionate about this cause and our goal is to promote cancer research and education and raise funds for various cancer societies around the world.
Last year, we launched the ‘I hope for…’ campaign to help employees visualize the impact they could have in the fight against cancer. More than 40 relay events took place over four months, including a triathlon in the UK, a dance-a-thon in Houston, and a half marathon in Singapore.
In 2020, Airswfit supported the opened The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Houston, which offers 64 guest rooms located near treatment centres in the area. This program provides a free home for cancer patients and their caregivers who have permanently resided more than 40 miles away from their cancer treatment centre.
Building Homes, Building Lives
With our newly opened office in Batam, Airswift is proud to commit to fundraising and providing support to Batam Women’s Build and Habitat for Humanity Indonesia. Since 2004, Batam Women Build has built homes for 14 families in Kabil, Batam and our goal is to raise enough funds to build their next home.
The Langley Graduate Program builds local careers, in Papua New Guinea. Since 2012, the program has invested over K400,000 in the career development of 86 UPNG graduates. Aimed at bachelor’s in business students, the program provides intense pre-employment training to the ability of future generations.
