In support of ‘Deyata Sevana,’ the country’s tree planting campaign to plant 1.1 million trees, national carrier SriLankan Airlines joined forces by planting a large number of trees at the airline premises in Katunayake on 17 November at the auspicious time of 10.07 a.m.

Members of SriLankan’s management, staff and employee unions joined in the National Tree Planting Campaign initiated by the Ministry of Environment to mark President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s second swearing-in as the President of Sri Lanka.

SriLankan is already assisting Sri Lanka’s Civil Aviation Authority on aviation environment standards in Sri Lanka, and is also actively participating in environmental initiatives by the island nation’s tourism industry.

In addition, SriLankan has obtained the assistance of the country’s Ministry of Environment, and Central Environmental Authority for its own conservation programmes.
