Environmental, social and governance
Effective management of ESG matters is fundamental to our business
We know that leadership and effective management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are critical to the long-term success of American and the vitality of our planet. We strive to provide clear, transparent information about how we manage and address the range of ESG issues we encounter in our business.
Maintaining robust governance practices is and has been a long-standing priority for American, and we regularly assess and refine our corporate governance policies and procedures to take into account evolving best practices.

Sustainability and climate change
We recognize that air travel impacts the environment, and we are committed to minimizing those impacts. Climate change, in particular, is a pressing issue, and we support the industry’s ambitious targets to mitigate CO2 emissions from air travel -- but we also know that we have to do more to reduce our carbon footprint.
