Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) was deemed worthy of an award at the Green World Awards, one of the world's most prestigious awards in waste management. Continuing to develop projects to raise awareness about recycling of wastes, TAI won the Gold Award in the Waste Management category at the Green World Awards, where 500 projects competed with its “Waste Management and Green Flag League” project.
In order to increase environmental awareness and support the zero waste project, the "Green Flag League" competition project, in which the most successful departments that achieved the environmental goals, initiated on June 5, World Environment Day, are determined, will be determined by the green flag winner unit of TUSAŞ after scoring in each quarter of the year. The green flag, which will be carried by the winner of each quarter within the scope of the league where a fierce struggle will be experienced for a year, will continue to change hands according to the announced score and will be handed over to the champion of the year at the end of the year. In the organization where projects from many countries around the world compete every year, the awards of the competition, which is evaluated by the jury in terms of their environmental aspects and where the best environmental practices are awarded, were announced on 23 November 2020 and TUSAŞ was awarded the gold award in the Waste Management category. TUSAŞ, which evaluates 99 percent of its wastes with the recycling and recovery method, has the same award with the award it has won. zamAt the same time, he became the owner of the title of "Green World Ambassador" in the international arena.
TUSAŞ, which carries out exemplary studies in environmental waste management at many stages from on-site separation to elimination of wastes in its facilities located in Ankara, was awarded a "Zero Waste Certificate" by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization for the first time among defense industry companies in recent months.
