Project Areas

TSKB’s sustainable banking approach seeks to create enduring value for all stakeholders through strong corporate governance principles and social responsibility projects.

TSKB’s Sustanability Milestones:

  • Due to decrease in energy consumption while maintaining the production level, share of energy in the unit industrial cost will decrease and that will have an impact on the company's profitability.
  • It will contribute to maintaining the competitive strength of companies against changes in energy prices.
  • It will help the countries to build less number of new power stations and/or import less electricity.
  • It will help for reduction in dependency on the other energy types like oil and natural gas.
  • It will help for reduction in emission of carbon and the other air-polluting gases.
  • It will increase the effective utilisation of current and imported resources. (it will have a positive impact on focusing on the utilisation of native resources and reduction of dependency on foreign resources.)
  • It will provide the expenditure per unit energy supply to be reduced.
  • Reduction of need for new energy conversion facility, efficient utilisation of current energy conversion facilities, distribution of expenditure made per unit energy acquired from the resources
  • It will provide reduction in unit costs. (consequently, declining industrial costs will make the company more competitive in its industry.)
  • It will provide the energy quality to rise.
  • It will provide the competitive strength to be maintained. (Especially in energy supply and demand in domestic and foreign markets)
  • It will provide preparedness for global energy crisis.
  • It will contribute crucially to the environmental protection. ( if one considers that the harm given to environment during energy production, transmission, distribution and usage is a cost item, this will contribute to cost efficiency and increase the efficiency.)
  • It will facilitate the improvement of research and development and the production of new technologies.
  • It will enable the citizens to contribute to their economy through "proper and conscious" choices.
  • Total energy need will decrease through decrease in specific energy need (in an equivalent instance), thus the need for energy investment will decrease.
  • It will contribute to creation of new areas of employment.
  • It will provide a dramatic decrease in energy density.
  • It will provide a crucial contribution to the elimination of the country's economical budget imbalance.
Study of Energy Saving

Determination of Energy saving Amount:

Energy Saving = (Consumption Before EE Investment – Consumption After EE Investment Has Been Completed +/- Corrections)

  • When calculating the energy saving, investing company should send the assumptions and calculation method details used in calculation to TSKB.
  • The company shall give detailed information on the list of machinery to be purchased and total investment amount.
  • The company shall give detailed information on project implementation plan (start and end dates, status of the project at the time of application and notes on scheduling).
  • Energy Efficiency Ratio: [(Energy consumption after investment – energy consumption before investment) / Energy consumption before investment)]= It should be 20 % or higher; or at least 50 % of financial benefit through investment (which can be acquired through energy amount as well as reduction in workmanship, general expenditure, losses, raw material usage, etc.), i.e. through investment for energy efficiency.

Energy Managment

What is Energy Management ?

Electricity, natural gas, water and sewage costs can be reduced with little or very little capital investment.

It is also possible to reduce the costs of systems like compressed air, cooling tower water, HVAC, illumination, cooling and steam by deploying multiple applications.

Energy management system enables you to control that operations cost in the most optimal way.

What is Energy Audit ?

Energy Audit is identifying the energy costs in a plant's production process economically and investigating the possibilities for cost-reducing studies and for cost reductions.

When such possibilities are investigated and implemented, there will occur significant cost reductions in electricity, natural gas, steam and water systems. Energy Audit is a feasibility study for investigating the cost reduction possibilities. Typically, energy audit includes evaluation on energy bills, control of energy systems and auxiliary facilities, cost reductions, a written report for payback periods, accounts and changeable product references.

An Energy Audit should include the following items.
A. Energy bills, accuracy of billing, power costs and fines should be reviewed. Exemptions from sales taxes should be investigated. Energy consumption areas and unit cost should be reviewed.
B. Energy Consumption figures should be evaluated and the feasibility of alternative applications like prevention of over-consumption, thermal storage, cogeneration, double-fuel should be analysed.
C. An experienced energy auditor should be invited to the production site and her suggestions should be considered. During her visit, all systems, methods and circumstances should be audited.
D. Big leakages in cooling, heating, steam and compresse d air should be investigated via leakage detector and should be eliminated.
E. Potential heating and cooling losses should be assessed
F. Burning yield rate should be measured.
G. In the illuminated areas, it should be assessed whether illumination levels are sufficient or abundant.
H. The synchronisation between working hours and illumination hours should be checked and it should be assessed whether there is room for saving.
I. Parameters like power, flow, temperature and humidity should be measured and adaptation of variable-speed applications should be performed.
J. All collected data should be evaluated through support of an experienced energy calculation controller.
K. All actions, results, proposals and paths to follow should be documented in a report. As different from some other types of reports, Energy Audit Reports should comprise all calculations, proposals with details in length and cost reduction actions which can be applied without assistance of external entities.

ISO 50001 Energy Management System

ISO 50001 is a new standard intended for energy management efficiency. The forthcoming ISO 50001 standard has been designed in compliance with ISO 9001- Quality Management, ISO 14001 - Environmental Management, and BS EN 16001 Energy Management System standards.

ISO 50001 is expected for publication in the end of 2010 or at the very beginning of 2011. Organizations seeking an ISO 50001 certificate may apply to accredited certification institutions regarding ISO 50001 Energy Management System as from January 2011.


All institutions and organizations operate their activities using energy may benefit from the implementation of an ISO 50001 based energy management system.


Helps decreasing energy consumption by implemented projects, maintaining control over and reducing expenses regarding energy with decreased energy consumption.

Helps maintaining control over the device and equipment use and obtaining information about performance by monitoring energy consumption, decreasing the negative effects on environment due to waste, allowing development and implementation of a system for emission monitoring and reporting, and increase respectability in the society thanks to energy awareness.


The time required in order to establish and implement ISO 50001 Energy Management System may vary depending upon the types of processes, types of utilized energy resources, and whether or not the organization holds any management system (for example, ISO 9001:2008). In general, establishment and implementation of an ISO 50001 Energy Management System takes at least 5-6 months.

Establishment of the system requires an ‘energy management’ and a team that will develop the foregoing system. The ‘energy management’ will take approximately 15% of the time required to establish the system. Upon establishment of the system, the predictions regarding the required time will vary with the strategies as determined by the organization and the projects intended to be implemented thereby.
