MUTLU: “OUR GOAL WILL BE A STRONG FUTURE”
Stating that every stage, from procurement processes to new generation building technologies and after-sales services, is included in the sustainability report, Ayetullah Mutlu said that they act with the mission of protecting the nature of Izmir and leaving a cleaner environment for the future. Mutlu said:
“As a construction company, on the path we set out with the motto “Life is Worth It” in 2006, our sole purpose was not only to bring to the city distinguished architectural examples that combine quality, aesthetics and comfort at the highest level. Our aim was to first make our beautiful Izmir, and then every location we are in, valuable from a socio-cultural perspective and to bring qualified workforce to our sector. We set out to create value with this approach. For this purpose, we took strength from our principles of 'Reliability', 'Being Useful', 'Value to People', 'Merit' and 'Global Competition', which were determined in our establishment and which are at the core of every work we undertake and which we express as 'Beyond Capital Values'. And how happy we are that we have always achieved greater success together with our teammates, who are our greatest inspiration on the path we set out on.”

ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Pointing out that today, the performance of businesses is evaluated not only according to economic criteria, but also according to their responsibilities towards the environment and people, Mutlu emphasized that the concept of 'sustainability' is not a new concept for them anyway; “Because we have been paying attention to human and environmental health in all our projects since the day we were founded. The basis of our way of doing business is not just the goal of 'profitability'. "Our financial approach in all our projects is shaped around our 'social, economic and environmental' responsibilities." said. Ayetullah Mutlu continued: “We shape our general approach, which we integrate with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with the idea of 'Sustainable Strong Future'. In this context, we support our stakeholders in the fields of 'environment', 'society' and 'finance' and work to integrate sustainable resources with our projects.”

Within the scope of Folkart's Sustainability Report, the priority targets are listed as follows:
Green building certificate (LEED), use of renewable energy (SPP) in construction sites, protection of biodiversity, employment creation in construction sites, use of high technology, recycling of excavated soil, establishment of water treatment plants on construction sites and reuse of wastewater, increasing energy efficiency, increasing the efficiency of suppliers and stakeholders. Supporting them to switch to low carbon emission and environmentally friendly production models.

WHAT IS IN THE REPORT?
- In their projects, one tree is planted for every 15 square meters of the 60 percent of the parcel area outside the building.
- The soils emerging in the project areas are subjected to decomposition and reused at different points in the field.
- The trees in the construction site are examined scientifically and the design is ensured to protect the greenery as much as possible and/or they are moved and replanted to protect the green tissue.
- Building terrace areas are also being transformed into 'green roofs'.
- Rainwater is collected and used for garden irrigation with a drip irrigation system.
- Materials such as iron and concrete obtained from demolished buildings are separated for recycling.
- Some of the energy needed at construction sites is produced with solar energy.
- Efforts are made to preserve the natural balance by planting a number of trees equivalent to the amount of carbon released into nature.
- Non-LED electrical fixtures are not used in all of our projects, both during construction and in the products we deliver to our customers.
- When choosing mechanical devices, products and brands with low energy consumption and high efficiency are preferred.
- Approximately 20 percent energy savings were achieved in each of the 2 ongoing projects. This is equivalent to planting approximately 4 thousand trees.
