Being a reference company in the Azores, SATA Group has adopted, over the years, a policy of environmental responsibility.
The SATA companies are aware of the importance of monitoring and controlling the environmental performance of the entire operation, whether it is on land or in the air.
In line with the United Nations objectives and the context of the Kyoto Protocol, the monitoring, verification, and communication of CO2 emissions is ensured under the CELE (European Emissions Trading Scheme) program and, more recently, CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation). Nevertheless, the companies do not underestimate the importance of adopting good practices daily and comply with NP EN ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management Systems NP EN ISO 45001: 2019 Safety and Health Management Systems, and, more recently, ISO 26000, which will focus on reorganizing the Group's Social Responsibility policy.
SATA Group is also committed to Regional Programs that aim to recognize the Azores archipelago as a sustainable destination. Within the scope of this commitment, SATA does not give up implementing measures that corroborate the common aim of sustainability, assumed by all companies in the public business sector.
SATA was the first Portuguese air carrier with an Integrated Management System (SGI) for Safety and Health at Work and Environment, which substantiates its desire for constant improvement in areas that it considers of extreme importance.
