Esenboğa Airport, which is the first airport in Turkey that achieves to reach this level and is listed amongst the top 27 environmentally-friendly airports worldwide, continues its efforts.

TAV has actively been participating in the Airport Carbon Accreditation program of ACI since 2009. Ankara Esenboğa and Izmir Adnan Menderes airports minimized their carbon emissions to the optimum level and listed amongst world's top 27 environmentally-friendly airports. Whilst Istanbul Atatürk Airport also participated in the program, TAV-operated Enfidha Airport in Tunisia was the first airport certified in the Africa continent. 

176 airports participating in Airport Carbon Accreditation Program consist of approximately 40 percent of world's air traffic by hosting almost 2 billion passengers. 

Providing service to 12.3 million passengers and approximately 88,000 flights in 2015, Esenboğa Airport commenced a series of practices in order to use the energy efficiently without compromising the passenger comfort.
