The Turkey plant of Kordsa invested over $223,000 for environment protection in 2016, said the company report. Environmental protection is among the seven values underlying its strategy. It aims to prevent environmental pollution through clean technologies and waste management, reduce energy consumption & emissions as well as to make efficient use of water.

The company aims to continue emissions management, monitoring and measurements, and to make systematic improvements for emission reduction. Kordsa’s strategic goals are achieving energy efficiency, and reducing energy use per ton of product, alongside other energy saving activities, stated the company's sustainability report for 2016.

"We, at Kordsa, manage sustainability by innovating technologies with the focus on humans and environment and with the aim of creating value for our stakeholders, notably for our workers and our customers. Today, 1 out of 3 automobile tires, and 2 out of 3 plane tires manufactured in the world are reinforced by Kordsa technologies," said Cenk Alper, chairman, Kordsa.

"In 2016, Kordsa was granted the jury’s special award in the project contest on energy efficiency in industry by the ministry of energy and natural resources in Turkey and Composite Technologies Center of Excellence received LEED gold certificate, which is presented to energy and environment friendly buildings by the United States Green Building Council. We also became a part of Istanbul Stock Exchange Sustainability Index," said Ali Çaliskan, CEO, Kordsa

Raw material expenditures constitute about 75 per cent of the company's total procurement. Beginning with the Turkey plant, the company started projects to reuse materials and to decrease the consumption of raw materials used in the production and aims to generate ideas for projects of other recycling materials in the rest of its plants.

Water use is of paramount importance for the manufacturing processes at Kordsa plants and auxiliary operations. In Turkey, about 236 thousand m3 water was treated and reused in 2016. The company is also planning to begin the review of its water monitoring methods for more accurate data gathering and to start water monitoring programme for better water management at all its locations in 2018, according to the report.

In Kordsa plants, disposal, recovery and reuse of production wastes and wastewater occurring are among its regular activities. At least 65 per cent of wastes arising in Kordsa Turkey are either recoverable or reusable. In 2016, Kordsa Turkey turned Nylon 6.6 yarn waste into a high value- added product, thus increasing its profitability. (RR)
