A sustainable living environment at and around the airport. A pleasant environment in which to work and live. For many years now, Schiphol has been taking various measures to make this a reality. And to make improvements. We strive to balance out the negative effects that aviation has on the environment.
Our efforts include improving air quality and reducing noise nuisance. We regularly discuss the impact of air traffic with local residents. That way, we know what action needs to be taken.
Schiphol is a large employer, but primarily aims to be a good employer that stimulates the regional labour market. We therefore create a healthy working environment, support continuous learning and provide possibilities for people who have difficulty finding work.
