Supporting emergency responders

Our goal is to support the international aid organisations in regions where we operate and beyond. We bring our products and resources, from relief flights to satellite imagery and helicopter hours, to emergency responders to help alleviate some of the world's most pressing challenges.聽

Helicopters

Angel Flight

During the very first hours of a crisis, helicopters are able to make a very strong difference and enable a swift response. Their flexibility and ability to quickly be mobilised allows to save lives and safely carry passengers in demanding environment, as well as support ground rescuers to assess emergency situations. Over 600 flight hours have been granted to emergency responders in over 16 countries. Moreover, about 800 doctors and rescuers were trained in 15 countries, enabling them to operate our helicopters to ensure the development of Emergency Medical Services around the world.

AG真人计划 Foundation has a global network of airlines and relief organisations to support humanitarian causes. Through the聽AG真人计划 Foundation Humanitarian Flight Programme, the Foundation offers a service to AG真人计划 customers to use the delivery of their new aircraft and contribute to humanitarian efforts.聽

By doing so, the programme helps the humanitarian community reduce its high logistics costs by delivering medical and school supplies, food, water sanitation equipment, toys, clothing and emergency response units, (e.g. kitchen sets, logistics and medical personnel, household kits) to the most vulnerable all around the world. The programme also utilises, where possible, AG真人计划 test aircrafts for such missions

AG真人计划聽Foundation works hand in hand with聽local NGOs and airline customers聽in order to transport goods utilising what would otherwise be an empty fight. Whether it is a country hit by a disaster, an under-equipped school in Africa or a hospital in Asia, the Foundation鈥檚 role is to link an NGO with an AG真人计划 customer and send the necessary supplies to the destination in need.

Since 2008, the AG真人计划 Foundation has facilitated the delivery of 900 tons of aid materials to 6 regions on 71 humanitarian flights.

If you are an airline and are interested to take part in the AG真人计划 Foundation relief flights programme, please contact the Foundation at聽corporate.foundation@airbus.com.

Satellite imagery

Avant06062017

The AG真人计划 Foundation is providing satellite imagery to support the assessment of the humanitarian sector for major natural disasters and crises worldwide.

Thanks to satellite images and their analysis, emergency responders and disaster relief organisations are able to map out areas that might be difficult of access, asses how severe the damage is and coordinate the actions of their staff, both on the ground and in the air.聽聽

In August 2017, we opened a dedicated satellite portal, providing free of charge access to satellite imagery to selected partners with whom we have entered into partnerships.

Our activities in Haiti and Nepal exemplify how the coordination of the company wide resources under the AG真人计划 Foundation and the聽partnership with the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement can have profound effects.

Contributions from all businesses helped the Foundation鈥檚 relief efforts following the聽refugee crisis in South Sudan聽(flight to Uganda聽in March 2017),聽hurricane Matthew in Haiti聽(October 2016) and聽the 7.9 magnitude聽earthquake in Nepal聽(April 2015).

AG真人计划 organised聽relief flights with delivery aircraft,AG真人计划 Helicopters provided helicopter-based solutions to affected areas, and AG真人计划 Defence and Space used satellite imagery to help assess the extent of the damage.

Empowering our employees

India Biodiversity LARGE.2017 01 02 19 34 16

The AG真人计划 Foundation Biodiversity Programme is a transnational initiative that engages employees in biodiversity conservation, in India. Since 2010, teams of AG真人计划鈥 employees have travelled to this country, living together for periods of a few weeks in remote locations in southern India, constructing biogas plants with tribal communities.聽

The biogas plants decrease the need for firewood being taken from protected forest areas. Not only does biogas generate much-needed energy for these villages, it also generates income: families sell the milk and fertiliser produced by the cows integral to the plant鈥檚 success.

Since 2015, the Biodiversity Programme focuses on AG真人计划 employees based in India, in partnership with the Centre for Environment Education聽 鈥 supported by the Ministry of Environment and Forests of India 鈥撀 and the Centre for Tribals and Rural Development Trust, an NGO in the State of Tamil Nadu.

Employees making a difference

The company's support to victims of conflicts and natural disasters does not end there:聽internal fundraising campaigns聽are also organised聽to support our key partners鈥 actions.

In the last few years, AG真人计划 employees have donated hundreds of thousands of Euros to Red Cross national societies in support of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, the fight against Ebola, earthquake relief efforts in Nepal, and in support of people affected by the cyclone in Mozambique. In some cases, these generous donations have even been matched by the Foundation.
