Sustainability Projects at Our Production Facility
Sanovel is a well-established pharmaceutical company that regularly monitors its environmental performance by determining its objectives and targets to control environmental impacts and reduce resource use, in order to pass on a clean and healthy environment to future generations, and aiming to take firm steps with the strength it derives from its values.
We carry out all our activities by focusing on respect for the environment, society and people, and we consider leaving a more livable and healthy world to future generations as one of our top responsibilities. The "Zero Waste Certificate" we received from the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization with our efforts to prevent waste, which we have implemented within the scope of sustainability, which is one of our strategic priorities, is an important milestone for us on this path. We know that waste-free life is the most important part of a great whole, and we continue to take new steps for a sustainable world and environment within the framework of our respect for the environment and society.
With the contributions of all our colleagues, accompanied by energy efficiency awareness training programs, we were entitled to receive the SO50001:2018 Energy Management System certificate at the end of 2022. This certification is an important step we have taken in the sustainability process to minimize environmental impacts by using energy resources more efficiently.
In order to use energy resources less and more effectively, we consider the efficiency level achieved in terms of energy and water consumption among our priority criteria when deciding on our new project investments. Accordingly, we replaced some of the asynchronous motors with high energy consumption in air handling units with IE4 high efficiency motors. In this way, we reduced the electricity consumption of the motors by 5-10%.
In the circulation pump groups, which have an important place in our electricity consumption, changes with high-efficiency models integrated as both motor and pump are among our investment plans for 2023.
According to 2021; In 2022, we reduced our electricity consumption per unit by 27.9% , natural gas consumption per unit by 26.1% and water consumption per unit by 2.4% . As Sanovel, we believe that more is possible with less energy source for a sustainable world. Our project work on the Solar Energy System, which has come to the fore in recent years due to being a clean, environmentally friendly, renewable and inexhaustible energy source, continues, and we aim to invest in this project in the coming period. With the SPP, which has a long operating life and efficiency, we aim to meet a significant part of the factory's electricity need, while minimizing the harmful gas outputs that pollute the environment, and to achieve a significant reduction in our carbon footprint.

Through AFAD, we delivered hand disinfectants of an important brand that we started to produce in our own factory for the Izmir earthquake to our citizens who were victims of the 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.
