Consus Energy > Sustainability


Consus Enerji’s approach to sustainability is built on three key components: These are environment, sustainable production and occupational health and safety. Consus Enerji’s sustainability approach focuses on energy efficiency and power generation from renewable and clean energy sources with low carbon emissions. Employee and stakeholder engagement as well as sustainable supplier management are also key elements of the sustainability policy.

The company’s priorities include continuous improvement in environmental consciousness, battling climate change, adhering to all applicable laws, monitoring national and international standards and new developments, and raising the environmental awareness of its employees. By minimizing its carbon footprint, making effective use of resources, and constantly preferring renewable and clean raw materials, Consus Enerji seeks to preserve the environmental interests of not only its own facilities but also the entire society. Thus, the Environment and Sustainability Department keeps track of all national and local sustainability efforts in order to incorporate them into Consus Enerji and its affiliates’s policies and ensure that stakeholders and suppliers are putting them into practice.


Consus Enerjgy has adopted the following quality policy in order to successfully implement total quality management:

  • Identify and realize strategic goals and targets aligned with the expectations and vision of our stakeholders;
  • Fulfill all obligations for conformity with all applicable local and international laws;
  • Identify the risks inhibiting our business processes from achieving their targets and take appropriate action;
  • Establish trust-based relationships with our business partners and the community;
  • Increase the satisfaction of our stakeholders by providing excellence in processes; and
  • Install, maintain, and constantly improve the quality management system and other systems required by our organization.

In this context, Consus Enerji and its subsidiaries hold a total of 23 Certificates, including the standards of ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System; ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System; ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System; ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management System.



Consus Enerji’s environmental management policy is based on minimizing the company’s environmental impact by consistent renewable and clean energy production activities that adhere to all applicable local and national environmental regulations.

The environmental management approach includes controlling the air and gas emissions and immissions emitted during its activities, so that they are prevented at the process, keeping these below the limits defined in the applicable regulations, reducing environmental footprint through continuous improvement, making sure the wastes are disposed of in the most appropriate manner in accordance with the applicable regulations and standards, and treating the resulting waste waters in the best possible way.

Consus Enerji aims to prevent air, water, and soil pollution at the source by making investments with a strong environmental conscience at all times.


Climate change is mostly a result of the inability to prevent global-scale air, water, and soil pollution at the source as a result of increasing industrial and manufacturing activities. Consus Enerji fully supports the battle against climate change by adhering to laws, eliminating waste at its source, providing air and gas emissions from renewable, clean, and carbon-friendly wastes that it prefers in its processing activities and raw material processes, and designing its facilities to ensure that the resulting waste waters are re-used to the extent possible in order to minimize the discharge amount.

Only biomass sources are used to produce the energy in biomass power plants. By using residual biomass products left in the farms following the harvest (cotton straw, corn straw, forestry waste, etc.) as raw materials, the company assists farmers and forests in clearing the land, prevents the use of fossil fuels, and contributes to the generation of low-emission, clean energy.

With its cogeneration and trigeneration facilities, Consus Enerji contributes significantly to energy efficiency and savings while also reducing emissions.

Consus Enerji is dedicated to constant improvement and advancement of environmental consciousness throughout all facets of its operations, from management to staff and from facilities to business processes, as part of the effort to combat climate change.


Consus Enerji’s Mavibayrak Energy Biomass Power Plant located in Soke, Aydın, holds the internationally recognized VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) certificate. To be certified, first approval is obtained from a verification body authorized in Türkiye by Verra, the international organization that issues the certificate, and then the amount of carbon reduction achieved by the project receives final approval from Verra in accordance with the organization’s internal procedures. Certificates obtained upon calculations made according to the methodology described in them are included in the carbon trading market to ensure that companies with high carbon emissions, which are required to lower such levels, can reduce their carbon footprints. Certificates produced by Mavibayrak Energy are also Corsia Eligible which can be used by the aviation industry to reduce carbon footprint.

Furthermore, Mavibayrak Doğu Biomass Power Plant, Doğal Enerji Biomass Power Plant and Ra Solar Power Plant all have I-REC (Renewable Energy Certificate) certificates which are made available to end users.


Consus Enerji’s biomass and solar power investments help lowering emissions by using renewable and clean energy sources instead of fossil fuel. Consus Enerji’s renewable power plants reduce emissions exceeding 80,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent every year.

Furthermore, cogeneration and trigeneration plants provide an average of more than 25% savings in primary energy source, according to efficiency certificates issued by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources for the facilities.
