“Although we, as the Yeşilova Group, are always proud of the achievements we have achieved for half a century, we continue to work with the awareness and belief that better is always possible. In this context, we attach great importance to this membership, which is an outcome of our sustainability approach. As of August 2022, we have become a signatory to the UN Global Compact principles that we aim for in our Sustainability Roadmap.
