Air India in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will screen the short cartoon film Ozzy Ozone on all its flights till the end of September.

Air India is the first airline in this region to screen this animated film, specially produced by UNEP. This film will introduce the comic character "Ozzy, Defender of our Planet", who will explain the significance and role of the Ozone layer and how one can protect it by eliminating CFCs, wherever possible.

Air India, under the chairmanship of V Thulasidas, Air India's Chairman and Managing Director, had established a Corporate Environment Core Group to act as a focal point with whom UNEP would interact on various environmental issues. This was Air India's joint effort with UNEP to ensure ecological stability, sustainable development and environmental well-being of planet Earth, a press release in Mumbai on Saturday said.

Commenting on being the first airline to screen the film, V Thulasidas said, "Air India has always played a proactive role in raising awareness of environmental sustainability and we will continue to take such unique initiatives with the same creative energy as part of our association with UNEP".
