 AND COMBATTING   Project to Reduce Energy Consumption

                 A new system was launched with a budget of USD 25 thousand in 2016 to
 CLIMATE CHANGE  reduce production cost via monitoring and reducing energy consumption in

                 RCM –reversible cold mill lines. Hence, cost reduction and energy consumption
                 reduction in un/planned stoppage of the RCM lines that consist of 44.5% of the
                 total installed capacity are targeted.

                 RESULTS AND GAINS
 — Every year at Borusan Group   While saving USD 130 thousand annually, approximately 715 tons CO  emissions
                 are prevented. In addition, production and maintenance software is produced for
 companies, we develop innovative   monitoring energy consumption model in the scope of the project, which supports
                 our strategy to reduce costs by maintaining energy efficiency.
