American Airlines was named to Newsweek’s 2020 list of America’s Most Responsible Companies, appearing among the top 100 companies in the publication’s inaugural ranking. American ranked highest among U.S. airlines included on the list.

“We believe our company’s focus is in the right place when we’re doing more than moving people from destination to destination — we’re taking great care of those people on their journeys, and we’re conducting our business in a responsible and sustainable way,” said Steve Johnson, Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs for American. “Our team members work hard every day to put that purpose into practice as they interact with their colleagues, our customers and the communities we serve, and we know our company is stronger for it. We’re proud to see their efforts recognized through our inclusion on this list.”

American’s approach to corporate responsibility is guided by three strategic objectives: to make culture a competitive advantage, to create a world-class customer experience and to build the airline to thrive forever. The company’s commitment to corporate responsibility is detailed in its latest Corporate Responsibility Report. Newsweek’s list was developed from an analysis of publicly available key performance indicators in the areas of environmental, social and corporate governance, in addition to an independent survey.
