The Surinaamse Luchtvaart Maatschappij N.V. is, as national carrier, aware of its role and responsibility as most important supplier of services in the area of international aviation and related services on behalf of the Surinamese community. Starting from this role within the aviation industry we continuously provide a contribution to the economic development of Suriname. We attach a lot of importance to sustainable development, originating from a clear awareness that we as a company are jointly responsible for humankind and environment on a broad basis. With this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy we are outlining the framework where all activities carried out under this denominator need to fit.

In its actions the Surinaamse Luchtvaart Maatschappij deliberately and consciously chooses for a balance between the 3 P’s of Profit, People and Planet. Within the current CSR policy a cooperation is in effect with Suriname Conservation Foundation (SCF). The SCF is the sustainable Surinamese Environment Fund that dedicates itself to the biodiversity generally and more specifically to the protected areas of Suriname. By participating in the SCF green partnership program a contribution is made to making the Surinamese economy green. The object of this is to improve the well-being of humankind with a lot of attention for preventing that future generations are exposed to environmental risks and ecological shortages caused by our present actions.

The sponsoring policy of our organization is also part of the CSR with the objective of stimulating a healthy society by supporting various activities carried out by and for the Surinamese community. In this way we give a meaningful interpretation to our social role and involvement in the Surinamese community.

The sponsoring policy focuses on the following themes:

  • Education
  • Sport
  • Health
  • Culture
  • Environment
  • Entertainment.

The following types of applications are not eligible for sponsoring:

  • in violation of the law, morals and or public order
  • related to alcohol, drugs and other stimulating substances
  • support of high risk sports like combat-, motor-, dangerous- and or extreme sports.

This CSR policy is not a static given. As the needs of our environment change and or developments in- and outside our organization give us cause this document will be adapted.
