The top four awards won by China Airlines were the TCSA "Best Report" award for Corporate Sustainability Report Awards, awards for "Climate Leadership” and "Social Inclusion Leadership”, as well as the GCSA gold award for "Sustainability Reporting.”

China Airlines is a pioneer in environmental sustainability in the Taiwanese airline industry. Thanks to its sound business and energy risk management mechanism, it was able to take the lead over domestic airlines and transportation industries by disclosing its first TCFD report and its Forest and Biodiversity Conservation Commitment.

"Giving back to society and creating social value" is another important commitment for the sustainability of China Airlines. During the COVID-19 pandemic, China Airlines transported important medical supplies on charter flights in response to international aid requests. More than 110 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were delivered to boost corporate social value. Volunteer teaching and charity basketball camps, caring for the disadvantaged, and donation of heart-warming food boxes to epidemic prevention heroes were carried out.
