Message from the Chairman


Chair of The Board of Directors

As Batı Anadolu Group, we play a key role in fulfilling our environmental and social commitments and building a sustainable future.

With the satisfaction of our stakeholders and the determination to add value to sustainable development in our region, we aspire to be a leading industrial group that stands out with innovation and sustainability.

The global health crisis caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic was the most important cause of socioeconomic fluctuations in 2020 and 2021. As it continued to have an impact, it caused disparities in the distribution of resources to become blatantly evident and showed the importance of sustainability to the whole world once again.

2022 was a difficult year marked by global conflicts and the energy crisis. After the Russo-Ukrainian War, increase in energy prices and supply shortages disrupted the supply chain. The energy crisis, which has shaken energy markets to its core and caused energy prices to break historic records, has increased uncertainties. This has raised the importance of secure, affordable, and sustainable energy supply to a more critical level. In addition, 2022 was a year in which we witnessed with great sadness ; extreme weather events, heavy rains, floods, and forest fires in many parts of the world and in our country due to global warming and changing weather conditions.

In 2023, we experienced the earthquakes of February 6, which shook our country deeply and caused us all great sorrow. From the first day of the earthquake, we mobilized all our means and supported the earthquake region in cooperation with public and non-governmental organizations. In this period, our greatest wish was to heal our wounds quickly, we once again realized the importance of sustainability.

In line with the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal, and our country's policies and commitments in this area, we are working towards a zero emission target within the framework of our Group's Sustainability Strategy. As an industrial group, our priority will be to maintain our strong presence in the areas in which we operate and to continue our activities with the principles of sustainability in the 100th anniversary of our Republic that we have become a part of for more than half a century.

As Batı Anadolu Group, we will continue to contribute to sustainable development goals with determination and courage. Only together can we make our work environment a better place for future generations. I would like to express my gratitude to all our stakeholders, especially the employees of Batı Anadolu Group, on our sustainability journey.
