TAV Ege General Manager Erkan Balcı stated: “TAV Airports places sustainability to the focus of all of our operations. We endeavor to minimize the impacts of our operations on the environment while providing a reliable, comfortable and fast service to our passengers. We have the goal to minimize our carbon emissions by continuing our investments in energy efficiency. Moreover, some of our energy comes from the energy that we generate from solar energy. We closely follow up international studies on this issue and continue working to comply with the highest standards."

U.S. Green Buildings Council CEO Mahesh Ramanujam stated: “As transportation projects usually have high operational costs, water and energy consumptions and waste productions, they have serious impacts on our daily lives and environment. These projects transform into efficient, economical and sustainable transportation units through the implementation of LEED green building strategies and contribute to the economy, environment, efficiency and people's wellbeing".
