WASTE MANAGEMENT APPROACH

Doğuş Otomotiv continually works to enhance its environmental management system and to reach more data. Regularly assessing the waste resulting from our operations, we strive to minimize our environmental impact, beyond legal requirements, and collaborate with various institutions to realize our recycling strategy.

 

Waste Paper

Waste paper is collected in the boxes of Ayhan Şahenk Foundation and send to Sadık Paper Company regularly for recycling. Paper Consumptions are determined in out Sustainability Report every year.

 

Waste Oil

As required by legislation (Regulation of Waste Oil Control), Doğuş Otomotiv has to deliver its waste engine oil to PETDER (Turkish Petroleum Industry Association), the only organization authorized by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization of the Turkish Republic. Within this scope, we have signed the “Participation in Waste Oil Management Protocol” with PETDER, renewed every year. PETDER is responsible for collecting waste engine oil from our Authorized After-sales Service Centers in Turkey.

 

Waste Batteries

Doğuş Otomotiv has an obligation (APAK Directive) of recycling 90% of the batteries released to the market. In order to fulfill our obligation, we collaborate with AKÜDER. Our waste batteries are collected in line with the “Waste Management Plan” of AKÜDER.
