Our Environmental Management Mission
Every individual and organization within society bears the responsibility for environmental protection. At "Wyndham Grand İstanbul Levent Özdilek," we strive for impeccable environmental performance by actively managing and mitigating the environmental impact of our activities and services, aligning with our environmental policy and objectives.
We pursue this objective in three dimensions. The first of these is waste management, the second is legal requirements, and the third is the use of natural resources and the development of projects that provide environmental benefits. Waste management practices essentially comprise two main components. The initial component involves the separate collection of packaging waste (paper, metal, glass, plastic), its temporary storage, and subsequent recycling by licensed companies. The second part involves what we refer to as hazardous waste, which necessitates separate collection distinct from packaging waste.
This involves the separation of hazardous wastes at the source, distinct from packaging wastes, temporary storage, and their delivery, with detailed records maintained. These materials are then handed over to licensed companies for proper disposal. Uncontrolled collection of these hazardous wastes leads to air, water, and soil pollution.
Environmental Management System
"Wyndham Grand İstanbul Levent Özdilek" has implemented an environmental management system that encompasses all its units. Within this system, environmental officers assigned to each unit collaborate with experts from environmental consultancy companies licensed by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. Internal audit reports, mandated to be conducted annually by legislation, are diligently prepared on a monthly basis. The internal audit reports are assessed on a monthly basis during environmental coordination meetings held at the head office. Any system renewal or deficiency elimination is promptly addressed. During these meetings, potential changes in legislation are identified, and preemptive measures are taken before they come into effect.
"Wyndham Grand İstanbul Levent Özdilek" ensures that waste generated at every step is systematically classified and either recycled, recovered, or disposed of in compliance with relevant legislation. Through comprehensive training provided to employees in each of our units, waste management is executed with precision, achieving a zero-error approach. Throughout this process, a thorough understanding of the economics of waste management has been acquired. Substantial knowledge has been attained in the field of waste logistics.
Not only "Wyndham Grand İstanbul Levent Özdilek", but also the suppliers of ""Wyndham Grand İstanbul Levent Özdilek"" adhere to legislation in accordance with our environmental management system. All companies that we work with in the waste management area are only able to work with us after getting the necessary approvals.
Dangerous wastes that occur in our facility and specified in article 5 are collected in our dangerous waste storage area according to the regulation and destroyed.
