Our goal is to perform in the long-term interests of our people, customers, shareholders and society - knowing that success in each reinforces the others. We are inspired by the good we can do in the world, boosting economies, supporting jobs and our supply chain. And we create social value, too. Travel is a window into other cultures; it helps us understand other mindsets, other ways of life, other benefits. Our people are central to our business and key in delivering for our customers. 

Equity, diversity and inclusion​ 

At IAG we are proud of the diversity of the workforce within our Group companies - with colleagues from around the world, working across more than 77 countries, speaking dozens of languages, with diverse perspectives, experiences and backgrounds.  

 

Health, safety and wellbeing 

IAG is committed to safeguarding the health and safety of our employees, customers and all others related to our activities.  

Bringing happiness to those who need it most

Every year, dozens of volunteers from across British Airways come together to help send almost 200 seriously ill children on the holiday of a lifetime, working with Dreamflight, a UK-based charity founded by a former British Airways cabin crew member.

Community engagement and fundraising

In 2022, IAG raised over 6.5 million euros for charitable causes across the Group, including campaigns related to the floods in Pakistan and the war in Ukraine. Of this 43% came from customer contributions, 35% from Company donations, 16% from employee contributions and 6% from in-kind donations. Colleagues working for IAG or one of our Group businesses are able to support communities across the world, and close to home.

Aer Lingus and Paralympics Ireland

In October 2022, Aer Lingus was announced as the Official Airline of Paralympics Ireland and will support Team Ireland as it prepares for and competes in the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. Following the support of the team for its Tokyo 2020 campaign, Aer Lingus will continue to support Irish para-athletes to World Games in the lead up to qualification for Paris 2024.

Contributing to economies and communities 

We believe in the positive economic impact of aviation, and from a recent series of reports we commissioned from PwC we have seen that IAG contributes around €70 billion directly and indirectly to the EU and UK economies, as well as supporting more than 600,000 jobs.

 

Human rights and modern slavery 

IAG is taking steps to prevent modern slavery within the Group and across its supply chains and asks suppliers to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct. We remain committed to taking swift and robust action if any evidence relating to slavery or human trafficking in our business supply chain is identified.  

IAG is taking steps to prevent human trafficking. Operating airlines work closely with governments and the airports in which they operate to ensure that any suspected trafficking on our flights is identified, reported and dealt with appropriately. IAG also supports the 2018 IATA resolution denouncing human trafficking and reaffirming a commitment to tackle this issue.
