Sustainability Policy

Our Sustainability Policy addresses environmental, social, cultural, economic, quality, human rights, health, safety, risk and crisis management issues.


     As SEHRI NUH HOTEL, which is involved in accommodation activities in world and Turkish tourism, we aim to integrate the concept of sustainability into our current activities, future investments and value chain by evaluating environmental, social and corporate governance practices.


     In line with the increasing world population and demands, we adopt a sustainable development approach that does not neglect future generations and meets today's needs, explores conscious consumption methods and alternative resources in order to maintain the existence of natural resources.


     Our sustainability policy forms the basis of SEHRI NUH HOTEL activities and is included in our business model to be applied to all departments starting from our board of directors.


     We recognise our responsibility towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals to tackle global challenges such as climate change, poverty, hunger, inequalities, water scarcity and loss of biodiversity.


     We aim to increase living standards and welfare by expanding our investments, and we prioritise promoting sustainable development in our operations and decision-making processes.


     Aware of our impact on ecological, economic and social dimensions, we are committed to developing the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as our primary focus and shaping our activities accordingly until 2030.


     Aware of the need for technologies that consume less energy, we carry out production and services that respect human health, biodiversity and environmental resources, and we continue to research and integrate innovative best available technologies that offer ways to transition to a low carbon economy by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint according to the science-based goals initiative. In this direction, within the scope of the European Green Deal, efforts to reduce waste, use resources efficiently, and recover chemicals and energy are carried out in our investments.


     Our Sustainability Committee, with the active participation of our Board of Directors, raises awareness on sustainable practices, analyses and reports issues that conflict with our sustainability policies, and determines and improves short, medium and long-term sustainability targets.



     In our reports, we evaluate the positive and negative trends of the results created by the activities we are responsible for in our sphere of influence through internal and external audits and take remedial actions; we develop studies to improve social, environmental and economic improvements and we apply national and international standards to provide the best quality in line with the needs of our stakeholders.


To carry out business activities efficiently in terms of environmental, social and managerial aspects;


     To take into account human and labour rights, social justice, business ethics, workforce diversity, gender and equal opportunities, risk management, commitment and cooperation with stakeholders, legal compliance, preventive measures against corruption, bribery, mobbing, discrimination and child labour;


     To create the necessary resources to integrate sustainability values that have a low ecological footprint for the planet, combat climate change, use resources efficiently, save water, prioritise efficient and reliable energy technologies, and support the circular economy into both our own work and our suppliers in our value chain;


     In this direction, we are committed to reviewing our sustainability policy at regular intervals and keeping it up-to-date in consultation with the relevant departments. All our employees are obliged to implement and adopt our sustainability commitments in co-operation.


     During the implementation of our activities, actions are taken in line with our Biodiversity Management Plan, Waste and Wastewater, Air Quality, Community Health and Safety, Cultural Heritage, Environmental and Social, Environmental Emergency, Internal and External Complaints, Health and Safety, Human Resources, Stakeholder Engagement, Training and Water Resources Management Plans in accordance with international and local legislation.


     Within the scope of environmental management systems, our principle is to evaluate direct and indirect carbon emissions, energy and water consumption and to set new targets for continuous improvement through EIA and third party independent environmental audits and drills.


     In accordance with the waste management hierarchy and the Zero Waste Project, our primary goal is to reduce the amount of waste at the source, and all wastes are separated according to their types in conditions where it is not possible to reduce the amount of waste generated to zero.


     Our stakeholders include local governments, ministries, NGOs, media, local community, universities, suppliers, consumers and our employees. We emphasise the importance of conducting interviews (surveys, etc.) among our stakeholders to ensure formal communication channels using transparent, sincere and open language. Consumer satisfaction and loyalty are monitored to improve our competence.


     Based on zero accidents and zero occupational diseases at the facility as a target, OHS performance is monitored and the root cause of incidents that threaten the health and safety of those in the workplace is addressed, and proactive, corrective and preventive actions (COPA) are adopted as a principle for a sustainable working environment. The training and development of our employees is a critical point for us, in this direction, we encourage our employees to realise their competence and their own potential by investing in trainings on sustainability.


     We conduct fair, equal opportunity, non-discriminatory, responsible and humanitarian relations and take care to ensure contact with local communities in the impact area of our facility. Our employees and local communities actively report to us through complaint and suggestion mechanisms, so that potential risky situations and requests (training, employment, food supply, etc.) can be assessed and acted upon before they become critical.


The Board of Directors is committed to fulfil the requirements set out in this policy and expects SEHRI NUH HOTEL employees to fulfil the same commitments.
