Our Environment Commitment

As Çimentaş Group, we aim at sustainable development in all our activities, and consider the protection of nature and the use of secondary resources as our primary responsibility.

We Create Value from Waste

In order to reduce the consumption of fossil resources and natural resources for low carbon cement production, we research secondary sources (waste) in the regions where we have operations and make our evaluations regarding their usability in our production processes. Based on our evaluation results, we use secondary resources that we decide are suitable for use and create value from waste.

We Use Alternative Fuel

As Çimentaş Group, we aim to maximize our use of alternative fuels, and we have determined a road map within the framework of legal requirements and adhering to the Circular Economy principles. In order to transform waste into environmental and economic value in all our plants, we obtained Environmental licenses from the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization with the subject of "Waste Incineration and Co-incineration". In the traditional cement (clinker-semi-finished) production process, the heat requirement is met from fossil fuels. Alternative fuels used instead of fossil fuels provide benefits for the protection of natural resources. Solid or liquid (ash, etc.) waste is not formed in combustion environments at very high temperatures, and it does not have any negative effects on the product.

We Use Alternative Raw Materials

By determining the wastes that can be used as alternative raw materials and alternative additives in our cement production processes; We are working to minimize our use of natural raw materials. In this process, we have received our "Alternative Raw Material Use Approval" letters from the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization for all our plants for wastes suitable for usability.

We Established a Zero Waste System

We received our "Zero Waste" certificates for our system, which was established with the waste separation studies we carried out in all our plants, the trainings we provided and the regular internal controls.

As a result of our studies and work, we have significantly reduced our carbon footprint.


We prepare rehabilitation and closure plans for all our active mining activities, and we continuously monitor and report biodiversity, putting nature conservation in our focus.

We regularly continue our forestation works for a liveable future in the regions where we operate.

Water Resources, Water Use, Waste Water Discharge

Water, which is an important input in the cement production process, is used in the most efficient way in all our facilities. In this context, no wastewater is generated from the production process, only domestic waste water is generated and is managed within the framework of the relevant legislation. We know the value of water, one of our most important natural resources, and we ensure the reuse of the collected water with the rainwater collection pools that we continue to set up in different regions.
