Sustainability means that an organization takes steps that will positively influence economic development, human life and environmental balance by bearing in its mind the social, economical and environmental dynamics and moves forward within this direction based on the interaction of above-mentioned dynamics.

The awareness about sustainability came into agenda for the first time with the below definition that took place in the report called “Our Common Future” published in year 1987 by the World Environment and Development Commission which is working under the United Nations:  “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable and to ensure that the nature meets the needs of the present day without compromising its ability for meeting the needs of future generations”.

It is a common idea that the sustainability can just be achieved by utilization of resources offered by the nature at a pace which can give such resources the possibility of regenerate themselves spontaneously; despite this fact there is a general consensus today that the earth resources and environment are marching towards to the limit of exhaustion because of human activities.

We, as KSR TRIMS, have adopted the sustainable development concept and in accordance with that we practice a management mentality where our corporate interests do not conflict with social interests and where the social and environmental issues are included among corporate sensibilities besides the economical and financial growth of our company.

Within this context, the sustainable development values that we consider as a company while performing our activities and plans are as follows:

From environmental management point of view; wastes, emission, natural resource consumption, water management

From eco-efficiency point of view; resource efficiency, energy efficiency, recycling, recovery.

From economical growth point of view; revenue transparency, growth development, savings, risk management, innovation, R&D.

From social development point of view; diversity and equal opportunities, labor standards, social justice, cultural heritage.

From socio-environmental point of view; health and security, process safety, climate change, regional environmental impact

From socio-economical point of view; creating employment, employee rights, skill development-training, work ethics, fair trade, regional economic impact, social investments.

Based on this understanding we perform a manufacturing in our facilities which is adopting the principle of “mutual solidarity with nature” instead of “taking advantage of nature”. We perceive all kinds of our resources not only as an economic value but also at the same time as a social and economic value. We have an understanding of ecology which does not see nature’s riches as a production factor and resource, which does not value them according to their contribution to the production process and which does not evaluate their asset value based on their market value.
