Istanbul University Has Been the First at the Research of the Most Green Office

Istanbul University has been ranked as first in the university category at the research of The Most Green Office which was made by enVision by preventing 4.490 trees to be cut with the 37 million paper savings.

Istanbul University has contributed to protect nature by providing a great deal of savings in the paper consumption as well as it has speeded up the work process after switching to the Electronic Document Administration System (EDAS).

In a special research made by enVision, Istanbul University has ranked first at the category of the most green offices among the universities in Turkey. According to the research, 4.490 trees have been saved from cut, 22 million liters of water have been saved, 1.267 tons of carbon dioxide and 89 tons of waste have been prevented in relation to the use of EDAS.

The Platelet of The Most Green Office Has Been Presented to IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak.

In the ceremony performed on the occasion of the ranking first Istanbul University in the research, the platelet and the certificate of the The Most Green Office were presented to IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak by the officials of enVision.

IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak told that he was proud because Istanbul University has ranked first as The Most Green Office among the universities in Turkey. By emphasizing the ecologist identity and the projects of Istanbul University, Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak also expressed that the university has provided savings for time and economy by optimizing the work process after using EDAS.

"Our University Has Registered Its Ecologist Identity by this First Rank"

IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak told that the work process has been automatized, decision-making process has become faster, process queue and completion period has become shorter, in-house communication has become better, the risk of document loss has been removed.

IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak continued his words: "There are many important responsibilities for all the institutions for a sustainable environment. Our university has registered its ecologist identity by this first rank. By administering all the work process via EDAS since 2014 January, we contributed a lot to protect nature thanks to decreasing amount of paper and cartridge in 5.5-year period. In this context, I want to express that I am proud and happy."

"I Congratulate Istanbul University in the First Rank of the List"

The administrator of enVision Kutlu Sagay cited his thoughts about the issue: "Many responsibilities fall to all institutions for a better green world. While the work process has turned into full integrated digital media in the offices, there have been great savings of time, economy and labor force via EDAS. On the other hand, tree cut and nature harm have been prevented. We carried out the research of The Most Green Office among local governments and the sector of electricity distribution last year. We have looked closer to the higher education section this year. I congratulate Istanbul University in the first rank of the list and thank IU Rector Prof. Dr. Mahmut Ak and prestigious institution thanks to their sensitivity to environment.
