Corporate social responsibility

Mr. Pedro Heilbron - CEO of Copa

Copa Airlines' corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our effort to achieve our corporate vision of being the leading airline in Latin American aviation. Sustainable development is not only the responsibility of governments and non-governmental organizations. It is everyone's task. For this reason, we strive to be responsible in all aspects of our business, channeling our efforts towards our pillars of youth, education, and the environment.

Thanks to the program "Take Off" ("Despega"), Copa Airlines and its great staff of volunteers continuously launch initiatives with tangible results that positively affect our employees, as well as the communities where we operate, achieving successful results with the implementation of social and educational initiatives, which to date have been of benefit to more than 25,000 children and teenagers in Panama and in 17 other countries.

In the same way, we proceed with implementing the 3 Rs (Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse) program and carrying out the preservation and care of the environment, investing in cutting edge technology and other initiatives that allow us to reduce the impact of CO2 emissions, as well as the noise, generated through our operation.

We will continue supporting these initiatives, since our success as a company depends on our ability to give better days to the ones that are around us and support us, with both their work and their preferences at the time of their travel.

Pedro Heilbron 
Chief Executive Officer.
