All the facilities are being audited with the audit booklet containing 50 questions prepared by the THBB Environment Committee based on the environmental permissions, water, waste, emission, soil, and other regulations. Audit team is consisted of three members. Member companies of the environment committee have an auditor pool consisted of environmental experts. 2 persons are elected by lot from the auditor pool, and one person attends to every audit as the witness auditor. The audit process contains field and document controls. Facilities with highest score at the end of the audit are assessed by the Board of Directors of THBB, and are entitled for receiving an award. In short, facilities are audited in every aspect regarding environment-friendly production, and the THBB Environment Committee chooses the facilities ranking among the top three.
In the 5th Green Point Environmental Award, our 3rd Bridge Project Facility in Garipçe received second place award, as well as International Representation Award. (In the history of the contest organized since 1998, for the first time a project facility, which is so sensitive due to its proximity to Bosphorus, has received this award.)
