Social Impact Pledge logo

Glasgow Prestwick Airport pledges to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next six months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment to improve our social impact.                                                                                                        

Signed, Ron Smith, Chief Executive, August 2016.

 Additional  Information

Glasgow Prestwick Airport  is very keen to be involved with our community and to be involved socially.  Our people are very keen to be involved in activities outside their core role at the Airport.

It is very important that we support this pledge to improve our commitment to our Corporate Social Responsibility.

We are keen to be more transparent with the open public and look to provide more information on our website.
