Programs we support
Sustainability at FCM
There’s no getting around it – travel uses up energy. Lots of energy. With our global teams flying across the world and back, we had to find a way to counteract all that energy use and pay it back to the environment. FCM’s pathway to net zero includes offsetting our own business travel, including flights and accommodation.
Closer to home, we’re reducing waste, emissions and energy consumption in our offices and through our suppliers to support a brighter future for all.
“We will leverage our platforms, people and partnerships to facilitate informed choices, helping customers reduce their impact and ensuring our actions benefit our people, destinations and communities”, said Michelle Degenhardt, Global Sustainability Officer for Flight Centre Travel Group.

Caring for the people who care for you
People are at the heart of everything we do at FCM. The importance of our people is reflected in our parent company, Flight Centre Travel Group's number one philosophy, which reads: “Our company is our people. We care for our colleagues’ health and wellbeing, their personal and professional development and their financial security. We believe that work should be challenging and fun for everyone and through work we contribute to our community.”
We’re constantly pushing to improve the welfare and wellbeing of our people and the communities in which they exist. This starts with proudly supporting diversity and equal opportunities within our teams – you can see our workplace awards here.
Giving back through Flight Centre Foundation
Building a brighter future in the communities where we work live and travel
The Flight Centre Foundation is the heart of the Flight Centre Travel Group’s corporate and social responsibility strategy. It provides company employees with a means to support nominated charities through workplace giving and fundraising initiatives. All staff donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by the company, which also offers a paid program for employees who want to volunteer their time to community charities.
We work closely with a select group of charity partners on an ongoing basis, supporting key programs and projects to maximise our impact, they include:
The Mental Health Foundation - Through our partnership we provide them with much needed funding, and they help us support positive mental health and wellbeing in our workplace.
The Halberg Foundation - Our annual partnership in the annual Halberg Games, allows physically disabled children to participate in sport.
We also help in times of natural disaster and emergency where we can with one-off appeals.
