In 2017 Yildirim Group updated its
sustainability strategy and based it on three main pillars being: the
customers, the employees as well as the business model.
The Customers are
naturally an important part of the sustainability model because by
understanding the customers and their needs the companies of the Group can
provide unconditional customer satisfaction. The Employees of the
Group are an important model of the sustainability in a sense that all
employees have superior competencies in their fields and value consistent
development and have respect towards the environment and
community. By applying state- of - the - art technology and digital
enhancement, which are the central part of the Business Model, Yildirim
Group makes sure this becomes a part of the sustainability strategy.
