Hitit, one of the leading technology companies in the aviation and travel industry worldwide, stands out as a dynamic organization on global platforms, earning itself a unique position in the travel sector. Known for its innovative use of new technologies and approaches, Hitit has made a significant impact on the travel industry’s progress over recent years.

Despite being a technology company that adds high value and has minimal environmental impact due to its lack of factory environment, Hitit’s distinguishing factor lies in its commitment to addressing one of the world’s most pressing issues.

As evidenced by our 2023 Corporate Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report, Hitit’s absence of emissions-producing production activities enables the company to adopt a multi-faceted approach to sustainability – a concept of paramount importance over the last 30 years, extending beyond mere environmental considerations. Through the environmentally responsible features we integrate into our solutions and our efforts to minimize our own carbon emissions, we are committed to contributing to the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Recognizing the multidimensional nature of sustainability, which arose from concerns about preserving a habitable environment for future generations, Hitit has made it a primary objective to facilitate the transition to a sustainable economy. In pursuit of this goal, the company integrates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategies. Located within Istanbul Technical University Teknokent, renowned for its environmentally friendly practices and strong recycling ethos, Hitit’s headquarters benefits from a naturally sustainable environment. Augmenting this advantage with internal initiatives, Hitit provides its employees with reusable flasks to minimize the use of disposable cardboard cups. Furthermore, the company upholds a zero-waste policy by strategically placing recycling bins throughout its offices.

Hitit aligns its operations with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), actively engaging in initiatives that aim to impact and advance these goals. Through projects targeting diverse audiences, Hitit strives to make a positive difference in areas such as sports, healthy living, environment, education, and gender equality. All activities carried out in line with the UNSDGs and focusing on sustainability are carried out as processes that are integrated with employees, far beyond being a strict company policy. Hitit’s employees actively participate in various voluntary activities, individually contributing to the realization of the sustainability objectives prioritized by the company.

Reinforcing the contribution of its employees to sustainability through training, Hitit provided professional coaching training to its employees in “Rackets Up”, Türkiye’s first and only sustainable table tennis project, which is one of our social responsibility projects. Additionally, Hitit places paramount importance on sustainability and environmental awareness, offering its employees comprehensive training programs aimed at cultivating their sense of social responsibility from various angles. One such initiative is the March 30th International Zero Waste Day training, which focuses on empowering employees to minimize their environmental footprint, embrace sustainable practices, and adopt greener approaches to conducting business. The training encompasses a range of topics, including strategies and practical applications for reducing energy consumption, ensuring energy efficiency, complying with environmental laws and regulations regarding waste reduction, recycling, and proper waste disposal.

In summary, Hitit operates with a sense of responsibility towards society and extends its contributions beyond the business world by integrating innovative technologies into environmental and social initiatives. With a commitment to creating a better and more sustainable world, Hitit will continue to actively engage its employees in how best to attain this goal by emphasizing the importance of continuous and comprehensive training.
