AFI GAINS ISO 26000

Bureau Veritas Certification has renewed the Single and Global Certification for Air France Industries (AFI), including the new ISO 26000 Social Responsibility standard. AFI is the first aviation maintenance company to adopt the new international standard.

The certification includes nine major sets of guidelines in key areas such as quality, environmental protection and safety. Published in 150 countries, initiated 1 November 2010, ISO 26000 takes into account the application of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) principles in organizations. The evaluation was conducted in all the AFI facilities in France from 2 to 5 November 2010. By receiving this Certification, AFI is the world’s first aviation maintenance organization to adopt this latest ISO standard.

The extension of AFI’s Single and Global Certification rewards the Group’s long-standing commitment to CSR programs. It constitutes objective recognition for the company’s hard work and initiatives in the areas of environmental protection and corporate social and economic responsibility, as well as AFI’s strong territorial roots. Adoption of the ISO 26000 standard also demonstrated the MRO’s dedication to “green maintenance” – a genuinely standout asset benefiting all stakeholders, from customers to suppliers, employees, and local authorities.

“We are delighted to have successfully adopted this new standard,” said Franck Terner. “We believe in Corporate Social Responsibility not only in our capacity as a responsible corporate citizen, but also because it represents a formidable governance tool. The skills it involves are highly shaping for a company like ours.” Gilbert Labroye added “The evaluation we carried out showed that AFI has worked in a carefully controlled manner to structure and organize its Corporate Social Responsibility program.”
