Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is one of the most important elements that supports the development of society. As a company we are very aware of this; we work together with various NGOs, we support them with our donations and each year we give our employees three days “volunteer leave” in order to encourage them to participate in the joint projects that we develop with these organizations.

Zero hunger, full food security

Although there is sufficient food in the world to meet everyone’s nutritional needs, today around 800 million people cannot access enough food. As a company with an awareness of “hunger”, the most serious social problem facing humanity, we are a strategic partner of the Global Food Banking Network in order to ensure food security, help to feed millions and eliminate hunger.

In Turkey, we have supported the Basic Needs Association (TİDER) since 2016 by volunteering for the Support Market and Support HR projects and encouraging our business partners in the food sector to donate their products to the Support Market.

In the 2017 Vodafone Istanbul Marathon, we ran 10 km and collected donations on behalf of TİDER under the slogan “run for good”. Through these efforts, we met the basic annual needs of 43 families through the Support Market, which saves usable products from being disposed of.

Every tree is a new breath

We know what an important role forest ecosystems play in protecting and developing biological diversity. As CHEP, our struggle against the destruction of the forests is based on the principle of responsible resource supply, which forms the foundation of our sustainable business model. All of the wood used in the production of our equipment is obtained from forests that have been certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). Thanks to our business partners who choose to rent CHEP equipment so that they can be reused, we prevent the cutting of millions of trees every year. We support reforestation efforts for a greener future and work as volunteers in projects in this area.

We established a 5,000-tree CHEP Memorial Forest in Balıkesir in 2017 as a reforestation project together with the TEMA Foundation. We also regularly visit the Nezahat Gökyiğit Botanic Garden in Istanbul, which was established by the Ali Nihat Gökyiğit Foundation for the purpose of protecting and promoting plant diversity.

Our children, our future

In order to guide our children towards the future, we believe that along with education, it is important to spend individual time with them. We provide toys and clothes to those in need, play games and have fun with them. We regularly visit our special children and support them in taking an active part in society, too.

The elderly are our living history

Another activity within our social responsibility sphere is the regular visits we make to hospices and retirement homes. We remember the elderly people who are responsible for where we are today, and enjoy spending time with them, giving them gifts we have prepared and entertaining them with our music - we do our best to give them a fun day.
