The Flight Centre Foundation is FCTG’s way of harnessing the collective goodness of our people, industry partners and customers to give back to the communities where we work, live and travel.
CHARITY OF THE YEAR
Each year we enter a relationship with a charity chosen by our staff. In 2017-8 our chosen charity is MIND.
Through the profits from their office supplies business, our stationery provider Wildhearts fund loans to empower the poor and help them work their way out of poverty.
Through our relationship with First Mile we are proud to say we are a zero waste to landfill business. First Mile recycle 90% of our waste. The rest will be used to generate electricity.
Flight Centre’s energy contract is made up of renewable source electricity. This comes from a combination of wind, solar, good quality CHP & tidal energy to name a few.
We monitor our carbon footprint and the environmental impact of our business travel. We then offset the carbon emissions from all staff travel. The money from this is invested back in to carbon neutral projects such as the building of wind farms or solar power plants.
