Social Responsibility

As Erdem Kaya Partners, we are trying to fulfill our duties and responsibilities with our activities to add value and benefit the community within the scope of our social responsibility projects.

For This World

Today, many experiences have shown us that we cannot talk about sustainability unless we integrate environmental protection into decision-making processes. As a company, we have always prioritized environmentally sensitive approaches both individually and corporately with our colleagues. In addition to increasing our individual awareness, we are also working to contribute to the climate agenda in our corporate structure. While trying to fulfill our responsibility towards nature with our environmental efforts, we also aim to be role models for the companies and institutions in our own ecosystem.

In addition to our awareness-raising activities in line with these goals, we carried out a ‘special’ project through TEMA. For all patent applications made by us, we donated a sapling in the name of the inventor and delivered the certificate to the relevant person. We tried to contribute to the afforestation of our country by donating more than a thousand saplings. In addition to these, our gift was always a sapling on the birthdays of our colleagues, when our clients signed a success or social responsibility.

In addition to all these, we know that recycling is also important and we regularly collect recycling in our offices. We do not throw waste batteries and electronics in the trash, we produce compost by separating food and presenting it to our friends who have a garden. As Erdem Kaya Partners, we will continue to do our best for a sustainable life.

Let Your Invention Be Your Toy

In our projects, we try to touch everyone, no matter how big or small. With the “Let Your Invention Be Your Toy” project, which we carried out jointly with the Ambassadors of Heart Association and the Governorship of Bursa, we met with kindergarten, and primary school 1st and 2nd-grade students and tried to explain invention, invention and patent in their language. Afterward, we gave the children colored pencils and paper and asked them to draw the invention of their dreams. Our aim was to expand their imagination, to enable them to gain an innovative perspective on life and events and to raise awareness on this issue. Everything the children drew on paper was flying. Flying beds, houses, cars and much more. We witnessed that their imagination was shaped by the fiction of flying as far as you can.

On April 23rd, we celebrated with the same children and presented them with everything they had drawn on paper turned into plush toys. We wanted them to feel their dreams in the palms of their hands with the wish that their feet would not touch the ground. It is worth everything to witness the happiness, surprise and joy in their eyes. In addition to special projects, we continue to work individually with the children of our colleagues and clients.

Patent Awareness Project

As Erdem Kaya Partners, we provide trainings on Intellectual and Industrial Rights and continue to raise awareness in this field. We have reached more than 10 thousand people with the trainings we have given so far. We can reach wider audiences with the inclusion of strong stakeholders in our awareness-raising activities. In this regard, we provided trainings to all OIZs in Bursa within the scope of the “Patent Awareness Project” in cooperation with the International Patent Association (UPB), of which our founder Erdem Kaya was the Chairman of the Board of Directors for two terms, the Provincial Directorate of Science, Industry and Technology, Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO) and Erdem Kaya Partners. The increase in the number of patent applications in Bursa after these trainings has been an important output of the project.

We know the importance of every work on intellectual property, which has become a national issue and directly concerns the welfare of the country, and we continue our trainings and awareness-raising activities in this field without interruption.

As Erdem Kaya Partners, we participated in the annual “Eker I Run” Run and ran to support the Çağdaş Eğitim Kooperatifi’s “Let the Wildflowers Read” project. We took every step for girls who want to study but cannot due to financial impossibilities. Together with our colleagues who participated in the run, we also carried out a campaign on social media, enabling everyone who wanted to donate for ‘Wildflowers’.

Erdem Kaya Partners will continue to support the running team by strengthening their steps every time.
