Environmental Management in our company is carried out within the Integrated Management System, which includes ISO 9001 Quality Management System, OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Sustainable Chemical Management targets, which enable ZDHC to move towards zero hazardous waste, constantly improve and support all chemical management systems in the supply chain.
Waste Management: Optima Kimya uses its own treatment facility and the treatment service of the Organized Industrial Zone in which it is located to remove waste from production.
Development of products that comply with Oeko-Tex 100 standards in textile: In order to ensure the ecological compatibility of textile products, Optima Kimya products do not use or exceed limited raw materials in accordance with Eco-Tex standards that restrict the product substances on them.
Optima chemical chemicals are manufactured in accordance with bluesign®, GOTS 5.0 (Global Organic Textile Standard) and Oeko-tex 100 standards and do not include chemicals in the priority chemical groups listed above the limits specified in ZDHC MRSL.
Along with the legislation affecting the textile and clothing supply chain, they fully comply with the restricted chemical lists (RSL) of competent authorities and brands.

In the Integrated Management System Policy, which also includes the Environmental Policy; “We are determined to respect our people and the environment by focusing on protecting our natural environment, reducing waste, increasing the recycling rate, reducing the use of natural resources, using energy efficiently, increasing the share of renewable energy sources in energy use”. In this context, to reduce emissions to receiving environments such as air-water-soil, to reduce unit consumption such as raw material-energy-water, and to reduce waste by increasing recycling and efficiency, and targets are reached or not achieved in this direction; are included. area is monitored by indicators.
Our company does not consider its investments to reduce its environmental impacts as a cost factor. With its efficiency-enhancing projects, it both minimizes its environmental impact and increases its sustainable profitability. In this context, projects that increase energy efficiency, one of our most important inputs, are constantly being developed and our unit energy consumption and environmental impact are tried to be minimized. Our unit energy consumption is one of the most important indicators we monitor and is constantly improving due to maintenance downtime.
