Corporate Social Responsibility

Çimentaş Group intends to be an organisation that has a consciousness of living together basing on long experiences, is capable of understanding the expectations and problems of the communities around it, considers itself to be a part of these communities and grows and matures together with them. Our belief in diversity and inclusion is the reason of existence of the respect we feel not only for our employees but also or our neighbours and external stakeholders.

To utilise resources more effectively and establish good relations with our neighbours and understand their needs and make responsible and sustainable long-term contributions while carrying on our operations with minimum impact on the environment is both a requirement of a responsible business and predominant outputs of a corporate perspective. Çimentaş Group fastidiously uses the resources with which we are provided by the earth and believes that it is a reflection of the respect for the world and the environment for us and for the future generations.

Conscious of the corporate social responsibility’s importance and its leading role in the society, the Group predominantly provides support for estimable projects and works which make difference in educational, health, cultural, artistic and environmental issues. It is our main goal and expectation that the support we provide and donations we make in these areas will create long-lasting values for our country. To make contribution to the society and consider our growth to be an integral part of the development of our society constitutes our basic philosophy.

The Group plans its Social Responsibility Projects in accordance with the criterias identified in the Corporate Social Responsibility Policies to which it is committed.

In order to bring the social responsibility activities into being and more accurately manage sustainable exemplary projects, the company established Çimentaş Education and Health Foundation (ÇESVAK) in 1986. Çimentaş Education and Health Foundation put into operation a great educational project under the designation “Işıkkent Educational Campus” in the 1998-1999 school year. Under this project, education is provided at all educational levels from nursery school to high school.

Işıkkent High School (Işıkkent Educational Campus) was established with financial support from Çimentaş Education and Health Foundation in 1998 and is renowned for its sophisticated and investigative approach in education. For this purpose, a campus equipped with proper facilities has been constructed. Çimentaş Education and Health Foundation acts with the devotion of supporting, improving and inspiring Işıkkent Educational Campus, which has an innovative and research-oriented approach to education. http://www.isikkent.k12.tr/
