IMG_8285JetBlue Airways released its annual environmental social governance report on Wednesday.

The New York-based airline uses the report to explain its long-term strategy, which includes purchasing more fuel-efficient aircraft and interesting students with science, technology, engineering, and math backgrounds in aviation careers.

“Reducing emissions and mitigating climate risk are critical as we evaluate the future of our business and industry,” said Sophia Mendelsohn, who heads the airline’s governance and sustainability activities, in a statement.

The airline is investing in the fuel-efficient Airbus A220 and the A321neo to replace its older and less-efficient aircraft. By supporting new education initiatives, it says it will bring more people with more diverse perspectives “into the cockpits, hangars, and boardrooms of the future.

JetBlue produces the report using Sustainability Accounting Standards Board and Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures Standards.
