Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) and Wings of Hope (WoH) are proud to be contributing to the Aruban Communityon Earth Day 2022.

Today marks the 52nd annual Earth Day and is recognized as a day to shed light on the ongoing and emerging global environmental concerns and the importance of change in human behavior and how everyone can contribute towards protecting the environment. Sustainability is one of AAA’s strategic pillars being a guiding principle for the company. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are anchored in the purpose, vision, values, and strategies of the organization.

This year’s Earth Day theme is “Invest inour Planet” and based on SDG 15 Life on Land, AAA is proudly contributing to the environment through two very important projects. AAA has partnered up with Fundacion Parke Nacional Aruba (FPNA) for thedevelopment of their “Cas di Cultivo”, an integral part of their Flora Biodiversity Enhancement & Climate Resilient Program which was officially inaugurated on April 22, 2022. This program entails the cultivation of native and endemic flora species, that in the future will be plantedin a closed off botanical garden network, which will be created and maintained by FPNA to serve as haven for local flora and fauna and as an example of sustainable gardening practices.

As part of WoH’s Environment/Sustainable Airport Community goal, WoH organized a beach cleanup on Saturday April 23, 2022in the morning together with Scrubble Bubbles with more than 75 participants from the Airport Community, Grupo Scout Ora Ubao, family members and friends who helped clean the area at Rincon Beach. AAA would like to especially thank ABC Project Venture for providing a large waste container at the location where participants were able to dispose of the waste collected.

AAA hopes to positively influence other companies to also take steps towards making a difference in the Aruban Community.
