Arçelik is a leader in sustainability

We never steered away from our sustainability goals. In Our 2020 Report we reported our performance and shared our progress against 2020 targets. We have set new SMART and ambitious goals towards 2030 and revised our mid- and long-term targets. In order to respond the challenges brought by COVID-19 during 2020, we strengthened our In Touch Technology framework to better respond to current developments.

Net Zero Target

We commit to achieve net zero emissions across our value chain by 2050.

We became Carbon-neutral

We became carbon-neutral in our global manufacturing plants (Scope 1 and Scope 2) in 2019 and 2020 with our own carbon credit generated through the Energy Efficient Refrigerators Carbon Financing Project implemented in Turkey, which was verified by a third party in compliance with the Verified Carbon Standard.

Science Based Targets

Our targets to reduce GHG emissions were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative

These are set in line with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature increase to "well-below 2°C" for Scope 1 and 2 emissions and position us among the 700+ companies worldwide. We have made a commitment to reduce our absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 30% and our absolute Scope 3 emissions from the use of our sold products by 15% by 2030 from a 2018 base year. To achieve our goals and retain our position as a leader, we will continue investing in energy efficiency, green electricity purchases and renewable energy systems.
