Our Commitment to Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)
At Skyservice Business Aviation, our commitment to ESG is not just a priority; it is
how we approach all aspects of our business. From our Board of Directors to the
executive management team and including every employee, we strive each day to
be a better corporate citizen.
Since Skyservice was founded in 1986, the company has been firmly committed to
making a difference in our world through equitable operations, charitable
donations, and improved efficiencies. Today, that commitment takes on new
meaning as we measure, manage and enhance our ESG impact in line with
international best practices. Indeed, our collective aim at Skyservice is to be an
industry leader in raising the bar for ESG standards globally.
Accordingly, we prioritize three ESG initiatives in keeping with our organizational
vision to deliver excellence on the ground and in the air:
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
- Social Engagement
- Greener Choices
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Skyservice promotes a diverse workplace. Founded on the strength and
dedication of our people, we invest in our employees and actively support
personnel for all of their unique contributions. We firmly believe that an
organization well-grounded in D, E & I inspires greater collaboration, innovation,
and company performance.
Together, we are working to be a better company by building a collaborative
employee base with diverse gender, cultural backgrounds, and all aspects of our
For 35 years, Skyservice has been active in supporting our people, our
communities, and industry. We take pride in delivering excellence, both in the air
and on the ground. We are invested in our industry’s future and want to do all we
can to support the success and longevity of Canadian private aviation. A brighter
tomorrow depends on fostering the next generation of private aviation
professionals today. That’s why Skyservice focuses its charitable giving and social
governance on bridging the skills gap in Canadian aviation, supporting sustainable
community initiatives, and educating people about rewarding careers in private
As a company, we have launched several initiatives to reduce our carbon
footprint and environmental impact. To date, we’ve significantly reduced paper
consumption and estimate that we’ve eliminated 10,000 plastic water bottles per
year by encouraging reusable containers and recyclable cups. We are leading the
charge in our sector’s commitment to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and are the
first aviation company in Canada to offer SAF to clients.
We’re also taking positive steps to reduce our energy consumption by replacing
conventional hangar lighting with efficient LED bulbs and automating lights and
thermostats. Our newest facility at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport
produces low waste and is energy efficient. We’ve also implemented effective,
non-toxic, and environmentally safe aircraft and facility sanitization solutions.
Each decision we make is evaluated from a green and environmental lens. Our
corporate goal is to be carbon neutral no later than 2050.
Our ESG achievements empower our team and reinforce the value of our work to
build long-term value and sustainability. As a leader in business aviation, we are
enthusiastic about the future, one that supports a green economy and embraces
diversity. Together we’re creating the conditions for everyone to succeed – the sky
is the limit!
