SkyTeam:     Responsible Alliance

As a leading alliance in the global airline industry, we recognize that operating at such a high level comes with duties and responsibilities. That is why SkyTeam member airlines have drafted a Corporate Social Responsibility Statement. This statement sets out the SkyTeam commitments. We want to ensure that our development as an alliance aims for high performance not only from a financial standpoint, but also from a social and environmental perspective.

Protection of water resources

The world’s supply of water is huge. However, it’s salt water of the World Ocean. Fresh water supply is not as high as people need. Lack of water is an issue in some places on the Earth. It’s needed for irrigation, industry, drinking and household requirements. Consumptive use of water increased tenfold for the past years.
