To create long term value for sustainability, Elif tracks its sustainability management performance and plans its enhancements in a framework outlining three main domains of sustainability as indicated.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY
ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental Sustainability is the ability to maintain the qualities that are valued in the physical environment of Elif. Elif’s programs for Environmental Sustainability include actions to prevent threats and impacts from arising, protect the environment from threats and damage, reduce the use of physical resources and use renewable rather than depletable resources, to redesign production processes and products to eliminate the production of environmentally unfriendly materials, and to help protection and restoration of natural habitats and environments valued for their livability or beauty.
Social Sustainability is the core element of Sustainability which aims to create and maintain quality of life for people. Economic and Environmental factors are important, but thay are both means to the end, rather than ends in themselves. Therefore, by working towards Economic and Environmental Sustainability, Elif is already working towards Social Sustainability. Elif’s actions for Social Sustainability includes ensuring fair trade and fair competition, local economic development, continuously enhancing working conditions and workplace safety, protecting human rights and health, providing a proper base for diversity, caring for personal security and privacy as well as supporting and leading social philanthropy programs.
Elif plans its actions to achieve and maintain an adaptive, resilient, vital economy providing opportunities and stability for its stakeholders, employees, business partners, customers, the society and the environment. Initiatives of Elif for Economic Sustainabilty includes raising the level of accountability/transparency as well as corporate governance, increasing shareholder value, enhancing economic performance and reaching financial objectives in and for its sustainability framework.
