Edinburgh Airport sustainability survey

adapted from an email from Edinburgh airport

Edinburgh Airport is currently developing a new Sustainability Strategy for the airport, and it wants to hear your views. Your feedback will form part of the materiality review which helps us understand which issues are most important to the business and its stakeholders.

Materiality is a concept that is central to a credible Sustainability Strategy. It is how Edinburgh Airport understands what topics have an impact on its ability to create, preserve or erode economic, environmental and social value for Edinburgh Airport, its stakeholders, and society at large. These topics then form the basis of what the airport will focus its sustainability efforts on and consequently what we will report on.

Achieving this cannot be done overnight, and Edinburgh Airport is working closely with BeSustainable who have already provided training sessions in October and hosted workshops and interviews last week with a variety of stakeholders. Edinburgh Airport wants you to have your say on sustainability at the airport. it understand that different issues matter to different stakeholders. To do this, Edinburgh Airport invites you to take part in a survey which asks for your views on sustainability issues for society and for Edinburgh Airport. The survey will be open until 6 January 2020.
