The Amadeus Global Report 2018 is the best way to review these accomplishments. It provides a comprehensive and transparent view of our activities, operations, and performance in 2018.
In this report, you will find information about the most important milestones of our business in 2018. Also, it includes details on our sustainability practices relating to the environment, social issues, human resources, and human rights issues.
In recent years, regulators and governments have shown increasing concern over the value that large corporations provide towards long-term sustainability – beyond economic rewards to its shareholders.
For example, EU Directive 2014/95 mandates that large corporations disclose specific non-financial and diversity information, relating to the environment, social issues, human resources and human rights issues.
We are fully committed to adhering to the vision of these new regulations. The Amadeus Global Report details our continuing push toward a more efficient travel industry for the benefit of all stakeholders and future generations.
UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
Details about our contribution to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are included in the report. In fact, technological innovation has a tremendous potential to make a positive contribution to these SDGs.
As a global company, we are aware that we create social and economic value. From the point of view of corporate governance, finance and labor practice, we aim to increase our positive impact on society, thus contributing to the SDGs directly linked to people’s welfare.
These are related to standards of living, working conditions, education, economic growth and social equality which are detailed in the report.
Sustainable IT program
We continue to invest in IT solutions that make the industry more sustainable over the long term.
In 2018, almost €900 million was invested in research and innovation, making Amadeus the undisputed leader in R&D technology investor in our sector.
The report provides further insights into this commitment to innovation and sustainability.
