Sustainability And Our Work On Social Responsibility
At Sanovel, we work with a constant eye in all our actions on the responsibility we have towards the environment and society. We aim that every project we undertake should add value to our workers and to society. We aim to reach the most beneficial results and every decision we make is evaluated from the perspective of social responsibility.
Up to the present time, through supporting many businesses and foundations, we have touched the lives of very many people.
In order to consume lower amounts of energy and to utilise energy in a more efficient fashion, the factory initiated the water cooling group project in May 2021, investing in superior and more efficient technology and aiming to achieve a significant reduction in total electricity consumption.
In 2020, we achieved the lowest level in electrical energy consumption per box for the last decade. Sanovel believes in the possibility of doing more with less energy, to achieve global sustainability. Our research project is ongoing on the Solar Energy System (SES), a natural energy resource that has come to prominence recently. SES is a clean, non-polluting, renewable and inexhaustible source of energy. The aim is to realise the investment in this project in 2021. With the long operating life and efficiency of the SES, a significant portion of the electricity requirements of the factory will be met, and any harmful gas emissions that pollute the environment will be minimized. Thus the total carbon footprint will be significantly reduced.
Sanovel is a firm which regularly checks its environmental impact by monitoring any effects it causes on the environment and setting clear environmental goals and objectives aiming to reduce resource consumption. It does this so that we can hand on a healthy and clean environment to future generations. We at Sanovel carry out all our activities in a way that respects the environment and people, and we view it as our most fundamental duty to leave a better and more habitable world to future generations.
Through working with AFAD (the Government Department charged with management of natural disasters and emergencies) we distributed hand disinfectants from a significant brand that we had began to manufacture in our own factory to the victims of the Izmir earthquake.
In order to meet the disinfectant needs of AKUT aid teams who carried out field work in the Izmir earthquake, we delivered our own disinfectants to the earthquake area.
In co-operation with the GEA Search and Rescue Team, as part of the "Rural Sister Schools" Campaign in Samsun and Bingöl, we sent disinfectant to 200 students who needed help in 3 rural schools, and we gave support to aid packages going to the students.
