Environmental identity for stores

Natural and nature-friendly materials are used in Vodafone's new generation sustainable stores. While the ceiling panels in these stores consist of 100% recycled materials, the material used on the floor is obtained from linoleum, which is 97% natural. Embalmed plants that do not need irrigation are used on the green wall created with the concept of "environment" in the stores. Vodafone aims to reach a recycling rate of close to 100% by evaluating the old furniture coming out of its stores, decorated with a new design approach, through its digital business partners channel.

Waste turns into coding class

Vodafone collects the electronic waste brought from the homes of its employees, business partners and customers and ensures that it is recycled by the licensed recycling company Akademi Çevre, with the “This Waste Writes Code” project, in which it blends the goals of supporting education and reducing its environmental impact. With the economic income generated from recycling, a coding class is established in schools within the scope of the “Coding Tomorrow” project carried out in cooperation with Vodafone Turkey Foundation and Habitat Association. Within the scope of the “These Wastes Write Codes” project launched in May 2019, coding classes have been opened in 7 provinces, namely Mardin, Samsun, Adana, Gaziantep, Uşak, Bingöl and Çanakkale. Corporate business partners have been supporting the project since 2020. Currently, 41 companies collect e-waste with the support of more than 28 thousand employees.
