Şişecam Group’s new sustainability pathway, called “Care for Next,” was launched at its International Sustainability Workshop in Istanbul. The pillars of the pathway are to preserve, empower and progress.

“With the influence of the fast momentum brought about by science and technology, humanity has increased their power to transform in numerous ways and at an unprecedented scale, and all the while, the requirement of protecting the environment is gaining more importance each passing day to ensure a sustainable development,” said Şişecam Group vice president and CEO Ahmet Kırman, in the opening speech.

Drawing attention to the fact that the entire supply chain and all processes in Şişecam Group’s operations were carried in line with its sustainability strategy, Kırman added, “As Şişecam, we aim to leave the next generations a livable world. Several matters such as energy efficiency, waste management and use of renewable resources are at the heart of all our decision-making processes. We integrate Industry 4.0 into the entire supply chain under our sustainability efforts. We believe that a smart future is only possible by Industry 4.0, and continue to invest in it while our global sustainability approach empowers our employees and stakeholders by advocating and engaging in practices that encourage diversity and inclusiveness, progresses through climate neutral, 360-degree circular model, and preserves natural resources that we rely on and our institutional heritage for resilient and sustainable generations to come.”
