Akkök Holding has been a corporation which drives social benefit throughout its history over half a century. Aware of the fact that it has achieved its current success with the support it got from the society, Akkök also shapes its sense of social responsibility in this direction. Therefore, social responsibility activities of Akkök Holding spread to Turkey as a whole, and especially the regions where the subsidiaries of the Holding operate. Within the scope of its social responsibility strategy, the Holding aims to contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of the regions it operates in and to ensure that all investments and projects are sustainable.
 
While deciding on the investments in this area, it is assured that the projects to be supported serve the primary requirements of the society. Akkök concentrates on social responsibility activities in the fields of education, environment, culture-arts and sports and supports projects in line with the values constituting the corporate culture of the Holding.
 
Another point to be considered in social responsibility projects is to ensure that the projects reach the largest audience possible and to obtain these people's support. For this reason Akkök works in coordination with the NGOs, other institutions where the projects are carried out and with scientists, while conducting the social responsibility projects.
 
As one of the most well-established industry groups, Akkök Holding makes long-term sustainable investments. It aims to help environment, society and national economy with its investments and activities, and works to assure that its products create added value and are innovative and environment-friendly.
 
Akkök Holding acts on the principle that generations of people living in a healthy and clean environment is as essential as innovative products. And By signing the United Nations Global Compact in 2007 which takes the lead in spreading the universal principles of the private sector in the sustainable development journey, Akkök took its first step to transform its corporate responsibility understanding into universal norms. In addition to this, the Holding's approach to sustainable growth and social responsibility is more clearly evidenced day after day by the awards that the subsidiaries of the Holding receive in these areas.

Aksa was also one of the 44 companies in the world, being the first and only in Turkey, to be included in the "Global Compact Year Book 2011".

The idea of the creation of a shared and collective culture of development among all the world’s inhabitants is the basis of the UN Global Compact Principles. The Global Compact introduces universal principles and defines a brand new corporate responsibility based on full voluntarism. It emphasizes the necessity for the social and environmental sustainability of development and creates an opportunity for public, private and non-governmental organizations to come together around a common ideal within a network of corporate citizenship.
