The Chairman of the Board Yüksel Holding Emin SAZAK has told us his opinions about the report ,“It gives us great pleasure to share with you Riseability IV, our report accounting the company’s unwavering sustainability related efforts from 2014. Sustainable development refers to the conscientious use of natural resources by maintaining a balance between humans and nature, and has become a crucial guiding principle for corporate entities in their creation of their business models. As a concept whose focal point is humans, with an emphasis on the planning of all activities such that future generations’ needs can be met, sustainable development has reshaped companies’ perception of the world with its social, economic, ecological, spatial and cultural elements.It is heartening to see that awareness in our world is increasing about the importance of economic and social development being accompanied by appreciation for the natural environment. The leading organizations of countries and industries have internalized sustainability, viewing it as one of their fundamental values and principles. In this sense, sustainability is reflected in their business models and future plans as a fundamentalconcept, beyond remaining a simple tool for competitive advantage or mere window dressing. Yüksel is an enthusiastic supporter of this understanding. Our core values dating back to the day our company was founded coincide with the main elements of sustainability, rendering us a natural leader within our industry. Signing the United National Global Compact in 2006 institutionalized our corporate approach, which has always emphasized the environment and human life, as well as making us a role model in our sector. This institutionalized framework which we refer to as “Riseability” has been guiding our work and our daily business operations ever since. Our annual Riseability Reports, the fourth issue of which is being published this year, are an account of the concrete results of the strides we are taking to this regard. At Yüksel, we have been continuing our social responsibility projects and sustainability efforts since 1963. This sense of duty is reflected in our fundamental principles, which first include not harming nature or human life, then taking the necessary steps to improve conditions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our stakeholders, and the entire Yüksel family for all of the support, belief and efforts, without which we could not have made such a difference through our endeavors to create an improved social and physical environment with oursustainability activities. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for your support of our efforts to fulfill our duty to make the world a better place.”
