As a major player in the global aluminium industry, Assan Alüminyum emerges as a leading flat rolled aluminium manufacturer with solid sustainable production practices and continuous growth through green investments. As one of the two largest aluminium foil producers in Europe and a leading flat rolled aluminium producer globally, Assan Alüminyum has a significant presence in the market. With an annual production capacity of 360 tonnes, the company continues to set new standards for excellence and innovation. As a subsidiary of the esteemed the Kibar Group, Assan Alüminyum benefits from a legacy of leadership and a steadfast commitment to quality, further solidifying its position as a powerhouse within the industry.

At the heart of Assan Alüminyum’s operations lie its core values of reliability, flexibility, innovation, and sustainability. These values serve as guiding principles, driving the company’s commitment to excellence in all endeavours. Göksal Güngör, the General Manager of Assan Alüminyum, underscores the importance of sustainability, stating, “Sustainability is not just a buzzword, it is ingrained in our core values.”

This dedication to sustainability is evident in Assan Alüminyum’s proactive approach to addressing environmental challenges. The company achieved a high score of B in the CDP Climate Change Evaluation, surpassing global industrial averages and setting a benchmark for excellence. Güngör proudly announces, “In this year’s CDP Climate Change Evaluation, Assan Alüminyum achieved a score of B, surpassing both the global industrial averages and the global metal industry average.”

Moreover, Assan Alüminyum’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond its operational practices. The company received the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) Performance Standard Certificate, certifying that its production and recycling facilities operate in line with global sustainability principles. This recognition highlights Assan Alüminyum’s dedication to responsible practices across the aluminium value chain.

In addition to its certifications, Assan Alüminyum actively engages in corporate social responsibility projects that promote environmental and social sustainability. The Biodiversity Preservation Project, developed in collaboration with Kocaeli University, exemplifies this holistic approach. By focusing on preserving biodiversity through the propagation of endemic plants such as the Blue Star, Sea Daffodil and Riva Mullein, Assan Alüminyum contributes to environmental conservation.

The Sea Daffodils Projects in particular not only contribute to environmental sustainability but ensure social well-being by incorporating social sustainability principles. With this aim, the company sponsors the Sea Daffodils theatre play that aims to create awareness on biodiversity conservation, through the metaphor of self-destructive marital affairs. This project underscores Assan Alüminyum’s impact on sustainability. Güngör notes, “This project has received two national and two international awards in sustainability and communications categories, including recognition from Communitas, Stevie, Brandverse, and the Turkish Public Relations Association.” These achievements reaffirm Assan Alüminyum’s position as a trailblazer in corporate sustainability.

Gender equality is another sub-topic of sustainability that the company prioritises in order to contribute to social responsibility by striving to help societies become more equal. Güngör adds, “We supported the ‘Women Entrepreneurs Initiative of Taurus’ in Manavgat to help local women gain their economic freedom. We also supported the education of girls, by donating to UNICEF’s ‘Leader Girls of the Future’ project and contributed to the education of one thousand five hundred disadvantaged girls.” In addition to the Kibar Group also carries out the “We Are Equal” project throughout the group to not only boost the awareness of gender equality internally and externally but to provide equal rights to all employees, regardless of their backgrounds and life choices.

In conclusion, Assan Alüminyum’s journey is a fusion of excellence and sustainability in the aluminium sector. With a steadfast commitment to its core values and innovative practices, the company continues to redefine industry standards and pave the way towards a greener, more sustainable future.
