The Turkish Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (THBB), working to promote the production of concrete in compliance with the national and international standards and to ensure the accurate concrete applications in constructions for last 30 years, has been leading the developments in sustainability. THBB gives great importance to the sustainability as a model that handles environmental balance and economic growth and believes that the best way to invest in our future is to use the natural resources efficiently. THBB, appointed as the Council’s “Regional System Operator,” in 2017, continues to promote the Responsible Sourcing System. The number of CSC certificates has started to grow in Turkey.
“Çimko Osmaniye Ready-Mixed Concrete Plant” and “Çimko Altınşehir Ready-Mixed Concrete Plant” have received the “Responsible Sourcing Certificate” in Turkey. These two certificates were issued on 28th December 2018.
Mr. Yavuz Işık, President of the Board of Directors of European Ready-Mixed Concrete Oganization (ERMCO) and THBB, said, "We have focused on sustainability issues. Within this scope, we have presented the Responsible Sourcing System to the Turkish ready-mixed concrete, cement, aggregates and precast industries. This system takes into consideration the environmental balance and economic growth together, and aims to meet the needs of future generations by ensuring the efficient use of natural resources. This system, specifically developed for concrete, cement, aggregate and precast industries, is very crucial and beneficial so Turkish companies show great interest in this system. On this occasion, I congratulate Çimko, a member of our association, which is entitled to receive the Responsible Sourcing System Certificates for their two ready-mixed concrete plants. Finally, I would like to invite our ready-mixed concrete, cement, aggregate and precast industries to join this system.”
