Yeşim´s social compliance efforts continued in Vienna (17 December 2009)

Participating as a panelist in the 13th General Conference of UNIDO, Yasemin Başar, Yeşim Textile’s HR, Quality and Social Compliance Director, has discussed Yeşim’s social compliance sustainability standards in her speech. Başar has emphasized the need to integrate sustainability standards into the company’s main functions for such standards to become an opportunity. Stressing the fact that owing to the commitment of the top management at Yeşim Textile, the company’s strength in social compliance relies on the company’s own system, Başar noted that the company has been awarded the internationally recognized SA 8000 certificate on social compliance. Başar also noted that social compliance certification has sped up the establishment of new commercial relations, which saved a lot of time.
