Turkish in new 'green' initiative

Turkish Airlines is making Turkey just a little bit greener with its latest partnership deal.

The Star Alliance carrier has partnered with the General Directorate of Forestry to plant a million trees in various forests in Turkey. A sapling will be planted for each child traveling on Turkish Airlines under the age of two years.

By signing the protocol, the airline said it is helping to ensure the health of Turkish forests for future generations. "These "memory trees" will remind all our citizens of the responsibility we have to be socially responsible with our forest use," the airline said in a statement

General Director of Forestry, Mustafa Kurtulmuşlu thanked Turkish Airlines for its role in preserving precious natural forests through a programme with children--"those who will most benefit from their presence in years to come," he said.

Turkish Airlines’ CEO, Temel Kotil, said; “I believe that, this cooperation and collaboration will make our work more efficient and effective, enabling more people to enhance awareness of the importance of keeping our nation green”.
