It’s a big week at Southwest Airlines! We’re excited to join the rest of the country to recognize National Green Week and National Volunteer Appreciation Week. There is a lot to celebrate, and we’re always up for a celebration around here. This week we’ll feature blog posts related to our Green Initiatives and our outstanding Employee Volunteers.
Southwest Airlines' Commitment to the Environment: Environmental Stewardship is a responsibility Southwest takes seriously, as minimizing waste and effectively using our resources (energy, people, and materials) helps us protect our most vital resource of all—the world in which we live. Efficient operations are the hallmark of our Company and the foundation of our environmental commitment.
Southwest Airlines' Commitment to Volunteerism: We know the positive impact that volunteers have on communities is remarkable, and we’re proud to support volunteers and their missions. To pay tribute to our own Employee volunteers and to further our commitment to the communities we serve, earlier this year Southwest Airlines introduced a Tickets for Time program that allows Employees to use their volunteer time to earn tickets for their favorite charity. In addition, Southwest hosts Companywide volunteer events at least twice a year, and encourages volunteer opportunities to be a part of Station openings and anniversary celebrations.
