Pegasus Airlines has become the first airline in Turkey to join the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative.


Pegasus has committed to implement its Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. The UN Global Compact calls upon signatories to comply with and implement ten core principles on environmental and social issues fundamental to driving balanced and sustainable growth of the global economy; to invest in people and the planet, and by doing so, to also support the UN in reaching its “Sustainable Development Goals”.

Pegasus Airlines CEO Mehmet T. Nane, said: “Fostering the growth of the global economy in a balanced and sustainable way is the primary duty of companies across all sectors. While doing so, it is essential to uphold such fundamental principles on environmental and social issues as respecting human rights, non-discrimination and environmental awareness. By joining the UN Global Compact, as Pegasus Airlines, we pledge to comply with the Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We are proud to be the first airline in Turkey to do so.”
