SUSTAINABILITY AT KALE

According to the Global Risk Report of the World Economic Forum (WEF) published in 2020, when evaluated in terms of their possibility and impact, eight of the top 10 risks are related to the environment and climate crisis. The Green Deal announced by the European Union (EU) at the end of 2019 includes the EU's goal of being the first carbon-neutral continent by 2050 and the steps to be taken to reach this target.

The climate crisis continues to be one of the most important issues of our era. Facing the seriousness of the situation, as Kaleseramik, we act with a focus on sustainability in all our production processes starting from the design to build a sustainable future and we monitor our performance in line with the goals we have set. Thus, we take international standards as a guide in environmental management with this mission. We aim to be a part of the global transformation by working hard to reach maximum efficiency considering all the issues affecting the world today, from climate change to drought.

As Kaleseramik, we consider the economic, social, and environmental impacts of our short, medium, and long-term strategic goals; and we cluster our strategy dimensions under the relevant ESG criteria.

We evaluate our economic activities under the strategic dimensions of the main agendas of innovation, digital transformation, and sustainability in the supply chain, our activities with social impact under the social dimensions of the main agendas of occupational health and safety, providing value to employees and talent management, relations with society and impact on society, and our activities with environmental impact under the strategic dimensions of the main agendas of raw material use, energy and carbon emission management, waste management, and water management.

As a result of the improvements that we implemented in our production facilities, our Kaleseramik facility was awarded as "Turkey's Most Efficient Industrial Facility" in 2013 by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources. We have reached an important milestone in our sustainability journey by making our production processes transparent and obtaining an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) approved by independent organizations for all our products. In addition to these, all our ceramic tile products have been awarded the "GREENGUARD GOLD" certificate by successfully passing the highest standard Indoor Air Quality test.
