Southwest wants to do its part to protect our communities and make the world a better place for future generations by respecting and valuing our resources. To help create a positive environmental impact in the communities we serve, we have partnerships with a variety of environmentally focused groups, including EcoRise. Learn more about how through our partnership, we were able to provide transportation to EcoRise members to attend EcoRise’s first Summer Institute!
Twice a year, Southwest Airlines organizes a companywide initiative that encourages Employees to come together and spend time volunteering in their local communities. During this year’s spring companywide initiative, hundreds of Employees put their Hearts in Action and participated in more than 70 projects across the system.
To help us create impact and make this volunteer event a success, we teamed up with one of our sustainability partners, the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to bring conservation projects to cities across the country.
Southwest Airlines partnered with GenHERation to offer two young women from the GenHERation network the chance to attend the 2018 Southwest Airlines Rally in Las Vegas. During the Rally, Melissa and Heidi heard from Senior Leaders on the main stage, connected with Southwest Employees to learn about their career journey, visited with different Teams during the Expo, and experienced the Southwest Culture firsthand.
We are thrilled to share our Repurpose with Purpose program video has been entered at the 2018 International Corporate Citizenship Film Festival.

At Southwest Airlines, it’s always been about Heart. It’s about Loving People and putting others first. t’s about Building Resilience through connections that last and being part of a community that helps one another because distance shouldn’t keep us from being neighbors. It’s about Living Responsibly and doing things the Southwest Way, which means we do it because we want to, not because we have to.
More than 70 elephants call the Elephant Nature Park home.
Elephants are often subjected to horrifying conditions. Last fall, about 40 Southwest Employees and family members met in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Most were Flight Attendants, many were strangers, but everyone united with a common goal: volunteering at Elephant Nature Park.
