Description: Electrical and electronic equipment is now a part of our daily life. However, when this equipment become waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste), harmful substances in e-waste can cause significant environmental problems, if not properly managed. We will be releasing a short video for International E-Waste Day outlining our work in treating e-waste. It will be hosted on our Instagram account and will carry the following message: As part of Extended Producer Responsibility, we established our own Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling plants in Eskişehir and Bolu in 2014 to reuse old products as resources and return them to nature. We collect old products from our customers, regardless of their brand, then recycle them, and give them a new life in the most sustainable way; as secondary raw materials. We minimize the environmental impact of the products throughout their life cycle by recycling refrigerators at our e-waste recycling plant in Eskişehir, and other white goods and small domestic appliances in Bolu. Materials such as plastic, iron, copper, and aluminium obtained from recycled electrical and electronic wastes in our recycling plants are returned to the economy in accordance with our resource efficiency policy. Through replacing the old products that consume high amount of energy and water with new eco-friendly ones since 2014, we saved 315 GWh energy and 6.4 million tons of water. Also, we prevented 155,000 tons of CO2 emissions. With our vision “Respecting the World, Respected Worldwide”, we continue to use resources in the most efficient way and contribute to the circular economy to protect our planet.
