Riyadh Air has announced that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative promoting responsible business practices and the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As an active participant of the UNGC, the airline will adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies in areas such as human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption and report on progress on these efforts regularly.

Riyadh Air will also publish its first Sustainability Report in advance of its maiden in mid-2025.

Riyadh Air CEO Tony Douglas officially committed Riyadh Air to the implementation of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact in a letter to UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

Tony Douglas CEO Riyadh Air commented: “At Riyadh Air, we are conscious of our environmental impact and committed to actively contributing to the Kingdom’s sustainability goals, adopting world-class practices and leading our industry in integrating ESG into every area of our business.”

The UNGC was launched in 2000 and is a voluntary UN agreement designed to encourage companies to develop, implement and disclose responsible and sustainable corporate policies and practices.

As a participant, Riyadh Air will also benefit from access to tools and resources to enhance learning, training and development for its team in all areas of sustainability.
