In today’s world, it is a crucial responsibility for every company to sustain natural resources and the diversity of biological systems.

We understand our activities on and off site have an impact on the environments in which we operate. We work closely with our employees, customers and supply chain to ensure all parties are fully aware of their social responsibilities and minimise the impact of our environmental activities. We comply with all relevant applicable laws and regulations.

Our Environment Policy that includes our environment conservation and development processes is under the supervision and the responsibility of our management. Our Health, Safety and Environment Committee reports its activities to the Board of Directors.

  • Minimize risks by creating clean work environments for our staff utilizing cutting-edge technology.
  • Prepare disaster management and improvement plans to be ready for  natural urgent cases.
  • Aim to reduce  negative impacts on the environment by reducing our wastes, energy and water consumption.
  • Utilize opportunities to improve and review environmental policies continuously.
  • Inform staff, suppliers, customers and investor partners about developments, ask for their contribution to the achievement of objectives and support them to achieve their own objectives.
  • Measure and improve our performance and share it with our business and investor partners annually.

  • Aim to increase the usage of environment friendly products in all our works.
  • Aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions proportionally to our activities and to maximize the energy efficiency.
  • When choosing our stakeholders, we attach importance to their environmental performance and observe constantly.

Biodiversity Conservation

We are aware of the importance of biodiversity for the world. Thus we aim to protect, preserve and enrich biodiversity and historical buildings. If we see that the public opinion is concerned about the environment during our operations, we evaluate our operations accordingly.

With our regular sapling donations and forestation works, we aim to help protect biodiversity.

Our carbon footprint

We have been calculating the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere due to our operations since 2014 to take action to reduce or neutralize our carbon emissions.

We calculate the proportionate number of trees annually and donate saplings in the name of our employees. We also carry out forestation works in cooperation with municipalities.

Carbon Emission (ton/year)

  • Resulting From Flights
  • Resulting from Natural Resource Consumption
  • Resulting from Fuel Consumption

3 saplings are donated with every new born baby

Based on the idea of “a greener future”, we make a donation to TEMA and plant saplings on behalf of new born babies of our colleagues. With every new born baby, saplings are planted in the memorial forests.

We recycle our wastes

With the aim to minimize our waste production and recycle as far as possible, we systematically recycle the wastes of our head office building and construction sites.

40.637

saplings planted

15.060

tons of CO2 avoided

512.13

tons of waste recycled

75.300

trees saved by avoiding gas emissions

Green IT operations

Since 2016, we have been reducing our energy consumption by using Cloud infrastructure processes. With the staff identity card system for printers, our paper usage was reduced by 70%. We replaced traditional desktop computers which consume high energy with new generation devices. We recycle electronical devices that turn to waste status. Thus, we recover metals such as copper, aluminum and lead without releasing them to the environment.

Solar energy production
Grey water recycling

We produce electricity with solar PV modules on the roof and terrace of our head office building. Approximately 1/3 of the power needed for Anel Group’s office and interior lighting is supplied from these modules. With electricity generation from renewable energy, we decrease consumption of electricity from the grid. Thus, we also reduce the consumption of primary energy sources used in the production of electricity. We use our energy efficiently by automatically turning off the lights during lunch and out of working hours. To reduce our water consumption, we use the Grey Water System in our head office. After a series of treatment operations, the waste water is reused for reservoir system.
