Daa Awarded ‘Business Working Responsibly Mark’ Certification

daa said the award from Business in the Community Ireland, which is independently audited, is a validation of the company’s commitment to being a sustainable business.

These include work being done with airline partners to incentivise the use of quieter and more fuel efficient aircraft, reducing energy usage in the terminals and buildings at Dublin Airport

and the success of the €10m Dublin Airport Community Fund, which supports local projects that make a positive contribution to communities around the Airport, including children’s clubs, sporting organisations and groups for older people.

On receiving the Business Working Responsibly Mark, Miriam Ryan, Chief Governance and Strategy Officer, daa, said: “This achievement is down to the hard work of our staff and the many initiatives we are rolling out to make us a more responsible business. Being certified with this Mark represents a significant milestone for daa and reflects our commitment to our customers, colleagues and communities. Our aim is for sustainability to run through every strand of our business strategy and we are proud that our approach has been validated against an objective set of standards. We are continually looking at ways to positively enhance the impact of daa’s businesses, both in terms of economic impact and jobs, as we strive to become a Net Zero business by 2050 at the latest.”
