As IC Holding, we take our steps forward with new hopes and great expectations in all sectors in which
we operate with our experience of more than half a century and the projects we have undertaken so far.
We act in cooperation with our stakeholders with our new business models, responsible investment
principles and sustainability perspective against the pandemic crisis that affected the whole world, and
against the geopolitical and economic challenges we are facing.
In 2004, Türkiye became a signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
(UNFCCC), and studies on climate change and sustainability gained momentum in our country. In addition,
by signing the Paris Agreement in 2021, Türkiye once again demonstrated its commitment to the 2053
net zero emission and green development targets, and the importance it attaches to these issues. The
role and ownership of the private sector in achieving this objective is crucial for accelerating the
harmonization process. As IC Holding, while determining our corporate strategy in the light of our
country’s goals, we take care to shape all our business processes in line with corporate sustainability
principles in order to maintain and improve our flexibility and competitiveness in the face of all kinds of
risks and opportunities. We accelerate our sustainability efforts under the umbrella concept of “Impact
of Development” and we pay attention to carry out all our activities in line with the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) with the Sustainability Policy we have prepared in line with this concept. With
the Sustainability Management System (SMS), which we launched in 2022 within the framework of this
concept, we aim to continue our work in this area in a more systematic and effective manner. In addition
to our corporate development, we also contribute to our country’s sustainable development goals and
actively take part in many associations, non-governmental organizations and working groups to raise
awareness on sustainable business models and encourage collaborations in this field.
We closely follow the latest global developments in the three pillars of sustainability: environmental,
social and governance impact. We identify the needs and areas open for improvement in these fields and
we undertake capacity development activities for our technical staff. We work hard to make meaningful
contribution to the regions where we operate with our many completed and ongoing projects in the areas
of combating the climate crisis, conservation of natural life, digitalization of business processes, employee
training and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
I am very happy and proud to share IC Holding’s first sustainability report, which reflects our sustainability
journey, with you, our valuable stakeholders. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our
valuable stakeholders, and all our employees who have contributed to IC Holding’s current success.
