SUSTAINABILITY AND SDGs

Sustainability is a form of understanding that considers protecting the environment and nature as a top priority for present and future living conditions. This understanding has been discussed in the broadest scale within the scope of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are structured around 5 pillars. These 5 pillars are;

  • Planet
  • People
  • Prosperity
  • Collaborations
  • Peace.

In this context, Kalyon Enerji aims to carry out its activities as per its vision and mission by integrating the sustainability approach into all its studies and creating policies accordingly. For this purpose, Kalyon Enerji manages its activities, resources, risks, and impacts that concern all its stakeholders, including the supply chain, by establishing an ESG system.

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) determined by the United Nations.

Kalyon Enerji plans its impact investments based on 4 main SDGs among these 17 SDGs. The biggest and first investment launched as part of these goals is the Konya Karapınar SPP Project. Konya Karapınar SPP Project directly contributes to SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy, SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG 13 Climate Action, and SDG 15 Life on Land.

INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Kalyon Enerji is aware of the standards regarding quality, environment, occupational health and safety established by the "International Standards Organization (ISO)" in order to increase international communication and cooperation and to encourage the fair growth of international trade, and carries out its activities with this understanding.

Importance and priority are given to the correct definition, evaluation, and reduction of all risks and impacts related to our responsibility for national and international legislation. You can access the certifications we have obtained for our businesses within the scope of our Integrated Management System under the ESG Awards and Certifications tab.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate Change is one of the most prominent and determinants of today's problems on a global scale, from changing weather conditions to devastating flood risks.

If necessary, precautions are not taken against the effects of climate change, it will become more difficult and complex to adapt to these effects in the future. In this context, increase population and living standards cause cumulative greenhouse gas emissions and, accordingly, an increase in average global temperatures. Kalyon Enerji produces low-emission energy by using renewable energy sources as part of the fight against the climate crisis. Our activities in the Renewable Energy Sector provide the greatest contribution to mitigation measures in accordiance with our national target with the Konya Karapınar SPP Project. SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy and SDG 13 Climate Action are our main focus SDGs.

BIODIVERSITY

Our aim is to protect and ensure the sustainability of biodiversity, natural habitats, and ecosystems with our commitment to the environment and living nature.

In this context, by adopting sustainable development goals, prevention of habitat distribution that may occur as a result of project activities, monitoring of flora and fauna components, particularly protected and sensitive species, translocation and protection of threatened species, bird monitoring studies on migration routes, restoration and landscaping and awareness and training of biodiversity by creating a positive effect with a nature-based understanding are the management strategies, which is targeted by Kalyon Enerji. SDG 15 Life on Land is our main focus SDG.

SOCIAL IMPACT MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

Active management and monitoring of social impacts in our investments also help us achieve our sustainable development goals.

Our approach includes the changes necessitated by challenging issues that are becoming increasingly important to sustainable businesses, including stakeholder engagement, community health and safety, valuing employees, supply chain management, climate change and human rights. Our aim is to create a corporate culture that respects human rights, sustainable sources of living, health, well-being and diversity, equality and inclusion. SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth is our main focus.

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

Ensuring the occupational health and safety of our employees, who are the invaluable pillars of our investments, projects, and facilities in the renewable energy sector, remains our utmost priority without any compromise. Kalyon Enerji consistently strives to establish and maintain a safe and sustainable work environment.

In this regard, all national and international legislation along with best and current practices are kept track of and implemented as part of our OHS Management system. In addition to providing legal training relevant to their roles, we empower our employees with additional training to enhance their awareness of occupational safety culture, foster behavioral development, and encourage active participation in our OHS processes. Kalyon Enerji furthers its efforts to set an example with its actions regarding occupational health and safety at all levels, taking into consideration that all incidents and accidents can be prevented. Electrical Safety and Control Measures in all our operational facilities with the Work Permit System and Lockout - Tagout (LOTO applications are implemented at the highest level to eliminate all electrical hazards.

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Instead of the throw-away approach which is the traditional production-consumption model consideration, circular business models that provide more efficient resource use are adopted in our activities to protect the ecosystem.

Our Energy Management System is a part of this understanding. In addition, efficient use of natural resources is aimed with the reuse and recycling/recovery of our wastes. In this context, transition processes from “Waste Management to Resource Management Approach” are followed based on national and international legislation and good practices.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Kalyon Enerji handles Diversity and Inclusion with a holistic approach in order to achieve its sustainability goals. The systematic management of social impacts and the promotion of inclusion play a vital role in achieving sustainable development. This approach also encompasses breaking down barriers and promoting equality for marginalized groups, including women, children, people with disabilities, young people, and minorities, who have been excluded from the development process.

Kalyon Enerji places diversity and inclusion at the heart of its relationship with employees, as it does with all stakeholders. Fostering a culture that recognizes, values, and embraces the uniqueness of each individual is integral to our commitment to embedding diversity into our daily work. This entails accepting and respecting differences such as nationality, age, disability, educational background, gender identity, race, religion, and ethnicity. Anti-racism and gender equality lies at the core of this approach.
