As CEO of AAA, Joost Meijs indicated, Sustainability has become a vital pillar and the focus for the years ahead and has now firmly been anchored throughout AAA’s vision, purpose, values, and strategies.
“AAA is committed to contributing to all the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and fully acknowledges our important role, in partnership with our partners and other stakeholders, to contribute to a more sustainable Aruba. In December 2021, the new vision and corporate strategy with sustainability as one of the top priorities were handed over to the shareholder, represented by the Minister of Tourism Dangui Oduber. As a result, last week, the Corporate Social Responsibility Report was presented to the Board of Supervisory Directors of AAA. All stakeholders encouraged AAA to accelerate this topic. Our commitment to a sustainable future for Aruba as is shown in this report was very well received,” as Meijs indicated.
Director Health, Safety, and Sustainability for AAA, Angeline Flemming stated that AAA is one of the first companies in Aruba, to report on their corporate social responsibility actions and efforts. “With such an important report, not only are we able to look back on what AAA has accomplished in terms of our company’s social responsibility, and our contribution towards the United Nations SDG goals for Aruba, we also hope that with this report we can motivate other companies and organizations to review their contribution towards a more sustainable Aruba as well.”
