Corporate Social Responsibility

Our company aims to carry out and support corporate responsibility works that contribute to our country. Our company believes in sharing back with the society what is earned from the society as a principle and acts with an approach that develops and protects the interests of the society in general. While the company realizes projects that emphasize the importance of using steel in constructing earthquake-resistant buildings, it also executes many social responsibility projects in the fields of education, environment, women, sports, culture and art.

Considering the contribution of women in professional life as an indispensable part of the development process of Turkey, our company works to become a part of this solution.

Borçelik, set an example in terms of leading the way for women’s employment in the steel industry with the project “No Job Too Tough For Women,” which highlights the idea that there is no men-specific work field and that women are capable of carrying out any job.

Within the frame of the program, women applicants receive technical training such as overhead crane operating licenses, as well as 250 hours of extensive trainings such as personal development and mentor-mentee programs. Upon the completion of the program 26 women find employment in different work areas.
