Energy and Emission Management
We value energy and emission management in all sectors in which we operate, as carbon emissions from fossil fuels are increasing and the climate crisis is regarded as one of the fundamental global risks today.
We value energy and emission management in all sectors in which we operate, as carbon emissions from fossil fuels are increasing and the climate crisis is regarded as one of the fundamental global risks today. All our Sabancı Group companies operating in different sectors are affected from the devastating effects of the climate crisis as well. The building materials sector offers opportunities for transition to low carbon production, while the banking and insurance sectors are developing new tools for green energy financing. Therefore, we manage energy and emissions, considering the critical effects of our companies. The production from renewable energy resources in the energy sector, the key to combating the climate crisis, is on our agenda. All our Holding companies focus on carbon emission reduction and energy efficiency. We devote our efforts on financing responsible investments and support green energy investments.
