Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air inflight recycling programs diverted more than 800 tons of inflight waste from landfills last year, including 230 tons of aluminum and 185 tons of paper. The two airlines also reduced their carbon emissions by 30 percent per passenger mile since 2004. These and other highlights are featured in Alaska Air Group’s first comprehensive Corporate Responsibility Report, which sums up the company’s progress on environmental, economic, and social goals.

MGM Resorts International has partnered with the American Red Cross in a new program for military veterans. “Boots to Business” is designed to help veterans in Las Vegas transition from military service into management positions at properties owned and operated by MGM. Nine veterans have completed the ten-week course.

FedEx has held its eighth annual FedEx Cares Week. More than 4,000 volunteers worldwide donated their time and talents to organizations to more than 40 cities where FedEx employees live and work. In addition, FedEx team members gave more than $15 million dollars to the United Way in 2011.
