Our Sustainability Principles and Focus Topics

“We are reducing the footprint of our operations.”

We regularly measure and report the environmental impact of all our activities to minimize the effects of global environmental risks such as climate changes and the reduction of natural resources. We identify the points that are open for improvement and determine the actions we will take in this direction.

Our priority topics in the focus of clean and safe operations are “Climate Crisis and Energy Management”, “Air Emissions”, “Water and Wastewater Management” and cover our efforts to combat climate change.

“We shape our future with innovations”

We are improving our ability to adapt to changing conditions by responding to the technology and digitalization trend that triggers a great global transformation. We produce sustainable solutions to global problems with our innovative and low environmental impact product designs.

Our priority topics in the focus of Sustainable Innovations have been determined as “R&D and Innovation”, “Product Development Suitable for Environment and Human Health” and “Circular Economy”. These topics include our digitalization and technology investments, our product designs in R&D, and the work we do in the field of upcycling and recycling.
