As Beko, we focus on empowering next generations to live healthier lives. That’s only possible on a healthy planet
and with a more sustainable existence.
We feel it every day, in our daily lives. All our actions, our lifestyle, and every
product we use has an impact on nature. Healthy living is only possible on a healthy planet.
With technologies that helps us to use recycled and repurposed plastic materials for our products, we strive to
reduce our carbon emissions in nature, one step at a time.
Our parent company Arçelik has become carbon neutral for greenhouse gas emissions
which are created from our own activites and from the energy we purchase and use* in 2019 and 2020.
We are committed to reach net zero emissions in the value chain by 2050.
Net zero 2050 emissions means we will do our best reducing emissions to the extent possible,
and for residual emissions, we will remove an equivalent amount from the atmosphere
by investing in natural climate solutions.
A total of 39 millions*** of plastic bottles used in 2019 & 2020
20% egg shell waste & 80% bio-based plastic egg trays
100% bio-plastic fan cover
25% bio-material door seal
A total of 71 tons*** of waste fishnets & industrial thread used in 2019 & 2020.
For us, this is just the beginning. As Beko, we are on a journey to discover
new technologies and materials for more sustainable products. Thanks to
our parent company Arçelik, we follow the 2030 sustainability targets for a
Beko is proud to be a member of the Arçelik family, which has sworn
commitment to the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Some of the targets that Arcelik has set for itself for 2030 is increasing the
use of green energy at global production plants, increasing the use of waste
and bio-based materials in products, and reducing energy consumption and
water withdrawal of products in manufacturing.
In 2020, 50% of our parent company’s turnover was from energy-efficient**** products.
Our parent company Arçelik has invested in not only better alternatives and improvements
to increase the energy efficiency in production but also renewable energy systems.
Only in 2020, Arçelik applied 238 energy efficiency projects in global production operations
which is equivalent to annual electricity consumption of approximately 4,300 average EU households.
Our parent company Arçelik has Science Based Targets Initiative
approved emission reduction targets by 2030 from a 2018 base year:
• Reduce 30% of our absolute carbon emissions which are generated from global production and energy purchased,
which is in line with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature increase to "well-below 2°C"
• Reduce absolute use of sold product emissions***** by 15%
• Increase recycled plastic content to 40% and bio-based material content to 5% in our eco-friendly product range.
• Increase water recycling ratio to 70% in all manufacturing plants
and increase waste recycling rate to 99% in global operations.
Our parent company Arçelik’s ambitious 2030 targets in order to achieve resource efficiency in production:
• Aim to purchase 100% green electricity in global manufacturing plants
• Make a USD 50 million investment in renewable energy systems, energy efficiency and green electricity
• Reduce energy consumption and water withdrawal in production of per product by 45% from 2015 baseline

loud and clear: What happens to one happens to all.
