Fraport, the owner and operator of Frankfurt Airport in Germany, has been recognized as one of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies by Canadian magazine and research firm Corporate Knights.
To compile its Global 100 index, Corporate Knights evaluated 4,973 companies from around the globe with regard to their economic, environmental and social performance. A total of 14 quantitatively measurable sustainability indicators are applied to determine a company’s inclusion into the index.
Dr Stefan Schulte, executive board chairman, Fraport, said, “Frankfurt Airport’s future sustainability is not only measured in terms of connectivity and revenues, but also with regard to what we do for our employees and our environment. Being recognized as one of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies advocates our approach of combining economic growth with responsible management.”
In 2016, Fraport obtained several other awards for its responsible business activities including its 11th inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index, another index that measures the sustainability performance of companies.
