Our organization proposes various solutions to preserve nature and promote the sustainable use of natural resources. We promote specific actions to care for the environment, employing disposable supplies and providing information to disseminate environmental issues that affect our planet.
We share ICAO's vision regarding the need to improve the environmental performance of aviation and the fulfillment of its responsibilities, developing standards to be applied by the entire aviation sector.
Nowadays, Argentina is committed to defending women's rights and diversity in order to enhance gender equality and ensure equal opportunities. In line with the established objectives to achieve greater gender equality in the transport sector, the JST actively articulates and supports policies to reduce gender gaps and ensure equal access and training in the workplace.
An important milestone took place in our country in 2014, when the first female accident investigator joined the agency. This was a significant event even at the regional level as there had been no precedents of this type until then. Between 2017 and 2018, three more women joined as investigators, one of them becoming Head of the Bariloche Office.
In addition, in partnership with different organizations, the JST collaborates in programs and projects encouraging women to continue developing their careers in the aeronautical sector.
With the aim to continue this process and expand it to other modes of transport, we are living a historic moment nowadays: the JST created the Gender, Diversity and Equal Opportunities Commission, in accordance with a State committed to the recognition of the rights of all people. We have a broad work agenda focusing on the reduction of the gender gap and the elimination of all forms of violence. We understand that it is essential to think about the transport system from a gender perspective and provide for the new generations to achieve the deserved recognition.
One of the cornerstones in our interaction with the community is the assistance to civil aviation accident victims and their families.
During the 39th Triennial Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), we presented a working paper suggesting the implementation of a coordination procedure between the AIG authority, the civil aviation administration and other aeronautical actors with the aim of providing appropriate assistance to accident victims and their families.
