In his speech at the ceremony where he emphasized the importance of sustainability, Yeşilova Holding Chief Executive Officer Yalçın Yeşilova said: In addition to economic sustainability, we have tried to reflect the sustainability of the environment and society into our activities and decisions. We also feel the need to confirm that the environment we live in and what we do are in harmony with this perspective. TAIDER’s sustainability evaluation process and the objective perspectives of experienced evaluators in this sense give us opportunities to improve ourselves at this point. The fact that impartial organizations and professional evaluators appreciate us in this way adds meaning to all our efforts and efforts. Both awards are very valuable. Corporate governance is an area in which we put a lot of effort. On the employee side, everything starts with loving and valuing the other person. Our goal was certainly not to receive an award. We are here to provide outputs and contribute to our development in our own sustainability roadmap in real terms. I invite all institutions and companies that have the idea of entering this process to take that first step without waiting. Many thanks to everyone who contributed. We are proud and happy with the awards received.”
