Öztürk noted that Ekoten carries out production with a focus on sustainability and works with manufacturers that comply with sustainability criteria when selecting raw materials and disclosed: “We, as Ekoten, have raised our CDP Climate Change Reporting level from B Management Level to A- Leadership Level as a result of these efforts.
