While maintaining the minimum applicable standards, we take new steps for sustainability every day. We take care that our business partners and suppliers are also in the same perspective, and we provide the necessary controls.
We do our job by using limited resources in the most efficient way and by taking it as our duty to reflect the awareness of sustainability to every person, company and product we touch.
- Environmental sustainability: With global warming and climate change, the yield we get from our soils has started to decrease, and the water level in the world has become insufficient. In this context, we develop techniques that reduce water consumption in our raw materials and production facilities, and we consider this indispensable in our supplier selection. With a zero waste policy, we reduce risks for the environment and living things, and prevent trees from being cut down more than is necessary. This causes a decrease in the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the air.
- Social sustainability: We have social sine qua non for the society we live in to live in prosperity and leave a beautiful world for the future. We adopt responsible production policies along with compliance with occupational health and safety rules and carry out our relevant audits and trainings continuously and regularly. All production facilities of Ermoda are inspected and certified by international organizations on Social Compliance, Code of Conduct, Code of Ethics and health and safety.
- Economic sustainability: The existence of continuity is the key point for possible new investments. Otherwise, there can be no development. As Ermoda, advancing with our principles, increasing employment, applying correct wage policy, and increasing our financial gains consistently are among our policies in this area. We are aware that economic sustainability should always complement social and environmental issues.
