The third in a new series of sustainability briefings entitled 'Towards a Sustainable Heathrow' is launched by BAA this week. The latest issue will provide a focus on air quality and is available at http://ethicalperformance.com/reports/links/baa-airqual10

'Towards a Sustainable Heathrow' marks a move away from BAA's traditional annual corporate responsibility report. The series will provide a frequent and accessible insight into how BAA works with companies operating at Heathrow and a range of partners to manage sustainability performance at the airport.

As the owner of Heathrow airport, BAA makes it clear that it takes sustainable development seriously - and states that while the benefits of air travel are significant, it is committed to maximising the national and local economic contribution of Heathrow while minimising impacts on local communities and the environment.

With ever-increasing scrutiny of the aviation industry's impact on society, BAA argues that its license to operate and grow Heathrow relies on demonstrating that economic, environmental and community impacts are effectively managed.

The series builds on a focus on 'climate change' and 'noise' and will continue throughout 2010 with a focus on , 'employment' and 'the economy'.
