Yeti Airlines, one of the leading domestic airline operators of the country, has partnered with the United Nations in Nepal to raise public awareness on the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDG) through branding their ATRs with the SDGs. Previously, as a part of the campaign, Yeti released two airport shuttle buses decorated with Sustainable Development Goals and the logos promoting awareness to reduce poverty, improve well-being and protect the environment.
The SDG-branded rollout was unveiled in Kathmandu on 25th September at the Tribhuvan International Airport in collaboration with the United Nations in Nepal and Yeti Airlines. The celebration of the launch was carried out in presence of Yeti Airlines CEO Mr. Umesh Chandra Rai and UNDP Country Director Mr. Renaud Meyer.
“The branding of our ATR 72-500 aircraft with the UN SDGs logo demonstrates Yeti Airlines continuing commitment to promote them wherever possible and to do what it can to assist Nepal to achieve them. We thank the United Nations for the opportunity to support these worthy goals”, said Umesh Chandra Rai (CEO – Yeti Airlines).
Yeti Airlines is trying to reach thousands of people with concrete and action-oriented messages for the global cause through their SDG-branded aircraft, shuttle buses, handy SDG leaflets, donate now link on their official website, branding on the boarding pass and social media campaigns.
Adopted by the UN Member States, including Nepal, in September 2015, the SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, is a bold, universal agreement to end poverty in all its dimensions and craft an equal, just and secure world – for the people, the planet, and prosperity – by 2030. The SDGs recognize the private sector as one of the key partners in advancing the Global Goals. The private sector has significant potential to bring in resources, technology, and innovation to aid and accelerate the SDG implementation process.
The United Nations in Nepal said they were pleased to receive new partner for SDGs. UN is sure that this initiation from Yeti Airlines will inspire and encourage other private companies to contribute for SDGs.
