Also in 2017, Riga Airport attained the gold category of the Sustainability Index rating.

Sustainability Index is a strategic management instrument based on internationally recognized methodology that helps businesses assess sustainability of their activities and their corporate social responsibility level in five areas: strategy, market relations, work environment, environment and society.

Based on internationally recognised methodology, Sustainability Index allows assessing companies' activities in five areas: business strategy, work environment, market relations, environmental impact and society. Sustainability Index was initiated by the national-level social partners - the Free Trade Union Confederation of Latvia and the Employers' Confederation of Latvia. Index methodology and project management are provided by the Institute for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility. In Sustainability Index, companies are qualified in bronze, silver, gold, and since 2012 platinum category.
