First CSC Silver for Turkish cement company

Akçansa is the first cement company in Turkey to receive a "Responsible Sourcing Certificate" from the Concrete Sustainability Council.

The Büyükçekmece Plant, where Akçansa - a joint venture of Sabanci Holding and HeidelbergCement and Turkey's leading construction materials company - operating for more than 50 years, is entitled to receive the "Responsible Sourcing Certificate" as a first in Turkey following independent audits.

Highlighting the sectoral importance of receiving the Silver Certificate, the highest level certificate that can be issued for the cement industry, Akçansa General Manager Umut Zenar said: 'At Akçansa we identify the future of the cement industry with the responsibility required to be assumed within the scope of sustainable development, and we set our business strategies accordingly. We have crowned our achievement with the silver certificate which we have received by proving our compliance to the international norms of responsible sourcing.'
