Sustainability Policy

TAV Airports continues to strive toward the vision of being the pioneering and leading airport operator in its target regions. In pursuit of this vision, the Company has always aimed to create maximum value for all stakeholders in the countries and regions where it operates while limiting the environmental impact of its operations and generating social benefit since the first day it was established.

As globalization continues to broaden and deepen in the present day, the economic, environmental and social challenges as well as market opportunities encountered by companies become increasingly varied and diverse. At the same time, the pace of change is accelerating while enterprises that cannot overcome these challenges and take advantage of the opportunities available lose their ability to compete effectively. As problems like climate change and depletion of natural resources necessitate diverse stakeholders to act together, the impacts of economic and social change reverberate across a wide geographic area. Companies that want to remain competitive in the future need to improve their business models and conduct while moving toward a more participatory, transparent and accountable platform that is respectful of the human condition and the environment.

The principles required to achieve sustainable growth are at the core of all Company operations. A bottom-up and interdisciplinary organizational structure has been put in place to disseminate existing know-how within the Company and to conduct measurement, reporting and development efforts in a coordinated manner. The Sustainability Teams at the airport terminal operating companies are comprised of representatives from energy management, waste management, water management, human resources, corporate communications, financial affairs and other related departments within the enterprises under the guidance of the General Manager and Deputy General Manager of each company. The Sustainability Teams report to the General Manager and Deputy General Manager of the respective enterprise and are responsible for carrying out measurement, assessment and reporting tasks related to key performance indicators set forth in the TAV Airports Holding Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan and developing projects and recommendations to improve sustainability performance. The TAV Airports Sustainability Committee is tasked with putting together and developing the Company’s Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan; coordinating and steering the Sustainability Teams formed within the terminal operating companies and service providers as part of this effort; and measuring, improving and reporting on the Company’s sustainability performance. The Committee consists of representatives delegated by the managers of the related departments within the Company and service providers. The Chairs of the Sustainability Teams of operating companies also serve as members of the Committee.

TAV Airports is committed to disclosing its sustainability performance openly, transparently and comprehensively to all Company stakeholders. As part of this effort, TAV has reported not only its economic performance but also the Company’s environmental and social impact in compliance with internationally accepted standards since 2010. TAV Airports takes special heed of stakeholder participation and embraces a participatory management approach at every phase of its operations. TAV employs the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards in order to present its reporting initiatives in a comparative and understandable manner.
