Antarctica, an eye opener
15 years ago, Air was already advising the International Polar station initiative created by Alain Hubert.
In 2009, Eric and Stéphane joined a trip to Antarctica to open the Princess Elisabeth polar station. This was the first zero emission station built in such a hostile environment.
The fragility of our ecosystem, revealed by the delegation of climatologists and the extraordinary energy deployed to build the polar station have been a real eye-opener.
Air has always been very engaged in Social-Societal and environmental matters. Defending human rights for more than 20 years with Amnesty International. Helping change mentalities towards Handicap with Cap 48 for decades.
However the acceleration of the global warming and the urge to build a better world have convinced us that we should go all the way.
This is where we decided that our sustainable commitment would become an essential part of our business.
