Going Green

At Southwest Airlines, we do our part to minimize our impact on the environment by operating efficiently using a green filter, collecting and analyzing information on our impacts, and continuously improving the actions we take to mitigate those impacts.

We continue analyzing data on our fuel consumption, emissions, and resource use and have embarked on new initiatives that will lead to further greenhouse gas emissions reductions in the near future. As part of our commitment to protecting our Planet, we use resources responsibly, conserve fuel and water, recycle onboard and on the ground, employ green purchasing practices, and implement design and construction practices that meet LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for design, construction, and renovations.

Our passion for protecting the environment is part of our triple bottom line commitment to our Performance, our People, and our Planet.
