Energy supply company Sepaş Enerji encourages its business partners to reduce their carbon footprint and consume energy from renewable sources. In 2020, the number of companies that received a “Carbon Reduction Certificate” with a total electricity bill value of 150 million TL through Sepaş Enerji approached 200.
While fossil fuel consumption, which increases foreign dependency on energy, creates environmental risks, reducing its use also brings advantages. With the “Renewable Energy Resources Support Mechanism” (YEKDEM), which has been in effect since 2005, clean energy production is also supported by the state. In Turkey Sepaş Energy also continues to work to spread the use of energy produced from renewable sources.
Aims to reduce its carbon footprint
Providing electricity services to 4 million people in a wide range from residences to commercial and industrial organizations, Sepaş Enerji provides certificate support to reduce the carbon emission values resulting from the production of institutions.

Next year, it is aimed to further reduce the carbon footprints of business partners by doubling the number of certified organizations.
On the other hand, following the “Border Carbon Regulation” implemented by the European Union, additional costs for the emission values of exporting companies came to the fore.
