We’re the airline with Heart, and we want to treat our Planet similar to how we treat our Customers—with genuine thoughtfulness that extends beyond takeoff and landing. For years, Southwest’s shown our Heart for the Planet by operating efficiently and respecting the environment. Environmental sustainability remains an ongoing priority for our future and we’ve set a goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. To reach this long-term goal, we recognize the need to act and make progress this decade.

That’s why, in 2021, we proudly launched our 10-Year Environmental Sustainability plan. For more information about our efforts, please visit: swa.is/planetplan.

Southwest Airlines' number one priority is to ensure the personal Safety of each Southwest Customer and Employee. Beyond this, we follow "The Golden Rule," meaning that we treat each other the way we want to be treated, which is why doing the right thing by our Employees and Customers is so inherent to who we are as a Company. We believe in Living the Southwest Way, which is to have a Warrior Spirit, a Servant's Heart, and a Fun-LUVing Attitude. Within each of these categories are specific behaviors to help us be a Safe, profitable, and a Fun place to work. More about our culture
