What is Sustainability?

Based on the use and management of natural products and energy without harming the environment, sustainability is an approach that prioritizes the future of people and the world at large. Meeting today's needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, creating an environment in which humans and nature can live together in harmony and supporting the maintenance of this environment, and growing companies by managing risks that may create environmental and social impact are all important parts of sustainability.  On a global scale, governments, organizations and individuals knowing about sustainability principles and acting in accordance with these principles play a key role in ensuring a more promising and brighter future for our world. Every step, no matter how small or big, taken towards sustainability goals lays the foundations of a large and important organization for the well-being of our environment and humanity.

Advanced Technology, Eco-Friendly Solutions 

As Karel, we care about our duties towards nature for a livable future. Accordingly, while creating the technologies of the future, we aim not only to reduce the environmental impact of our business and production processes, but also to create a positive impact. With the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, we fulfill our duty by integrating our brand and partners into our sustainability principle and work for a bright future.

Empowering Society

We recognize the importance of individuals in the formation of society. We adopt a shared value approach at every stage of our business and production, from our employees to our business partners and suppliers. We are implementing an inclusive model that considers equality by standing shoulder to shoulder with our employees, business partners and other individuals and brands in the sector to empower the individual and society together.  In line with the articles in the development goals, we embrace that all individuals have equal rights in work and business life and we attach importance to the healthy implementation of equality within the company. We fulfill our duty to create an equal and strong future in all areas of society and aim to ensure the equal participation of all our stakeholders in this goal.

Our Sustainability Goals

For a better future, we aim to minimize our carbon footprint by 2030 with our partners and employees by accepting the universal consensus on all 17 items specified in the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Environmental Projects

We closely follow current technological developments and legal processes to ensure environmental sustainability in our production facilities and administrative buildings. We take all measures to minimize and in the future eliminate environmental damage and continue to shape our workplaces in line with sustainability goals.   At the same time, we focus on the use of renewable energy sources in our production and business processes and increase the use of clean energy sources every day. By 2030, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint to zero.  We continue to fulfill our sustainability goals by minimizing the use of resources in our production areas and adopting a zero waste mission in common areas. To this end, we take advantage of new opportunities brought by technology in departments such as production and management, and take the necessary measures to eliminate all factors that have a negative impact on the environment.

Occupational Health and Safety

As Karel, we prioritize occupational safety above all else. We provide our employees with a safe working environment, look out for them in every aspect of our services and act in accordance with laws and regulations in the field of occupational safety. With the mission of "Zero Work Accidents and Occupational Diseases", we aim to continue to provide the best conditions for our employees in the field of occupational health and safety in the future.  We monitor the health status of our employees at all stages from the recruitment process to working life, and check the hygiene and safety status of the machinery and equipment in the working environment. We ensure that our employees are prepared and aware of different risks that may arise during the production process through drills and emergency precaution plans. We address potential risks at board meetings and quickly put measures and solutions into practice.




Since the day we were founded, we continue to provide services with the awareness of our responsibility towards the environment and nature. At every stage of our services, we take the necessary measures to be sensitive to the environment and shape our services and operations in accordance with the laws and regulations in this field. With our environmental management system, which also has an important place in our sustainability goals, we minimize our impact on the environment and the risks that may arise.

We cooperate not only within our brand, but also with our solution partners and suppliers to increase environmental awareness and implement sustainability goals. We organize our quality and service policies appropriately to ensure that Karel is an organization that is sensitive to the environment in every field and takes the necessary precautions today for the world of tomorrow.
