In the whole world, consumption of energy in buildings constitutes the major part of total energy consumption. With this declaration, we promote energy efficiency practices in buildings.

Step by Step EEB

Step by Step EEV

Energy efficiency in vehicles constitutes an important element of a company’s strategy for energy efficiency, and this roadmap designates the steps that should be taken in order to monitor and decrease the energy consumption arising especially from company fleets.

Step by Step EEI

Following the steps determined within the framework of this roadmap, companies will be able to create a strategy for energy efficiency in their industrial operations. Thus, such companies will decrease their energy consumption, and consequently, increase their efficiency.


Field Trips

In line with the requests from its group members, BCSD Turkey’s Energy Working Group organizes technical visits to the factories and facilities of its member companies throughout the year. The purposes of these visits are, mainly, observing energy efficiency practices on-site, and making good practices widespread.


Seminars are organized by the Energy Working Group to increase the awareness about energy efficiency and share information on subjects such as global developments, changes in the legislation and new concepts.
