In today's rapidly evolving business world, companies are expected to act with an awareness of their social, environmental and financial responsibilities towards their stakeholders, and to shape their business models according to transparency and accountability principles.
As Sütaş Group, we built our sustainability approach on three key strategic purposes in line with our corporate mission and corporate governance principles:
- Contribute to the development of healthy individuals and generations,
- Lead social projects that can support and improve our local stakeholders,
- Give what we have got from the nature back to the nature by minimizing our environmental impact.
We draw upon a strong sustainability management to achieve these purposes. We believe that effective dialogue with stakeholders and robust corporate governance processes are key to success in this approach.
We shaped our approach to sustainability and set our sustainability goals based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are included in the United Nations' 2030 Agenda and matched them with our own goals.
The Sustainability Committee is responsible for developing the sustainability strategy of Sütaş Group, setting the goals, monitoring and supervising the implementation, approving and checking the report and communication plan and all related processes, and escalating important issues related to sustainability to the agenda of the Board of Directors. The Sustainability Committee consists of the members of the Board of Directors. The Sustainability Coordination Committee ensures the communication between the Sustainability Committee and the Working Groups, coordinates the working groups and the studies on sustainability and prepares and implements communication plans.
The Sustainability Committee meets every two months, at the least. The Sustainability Coordination Committee, however, holds regular meetings on weekly basis and submits its monthly work report to the Sustainability Committee.
