Innovation ideas started with product and process innovations, but now stepped out from companies into the open space as sustainable innovation and it has become a platform available to other companies, and turned into collaborations. Today, even our competitors request to use our technology. As with R&D, we are working with the target of leaving our mark in open innovation not only in Turkey, but also in the global market. I would like to thank Business Council for Sustainable Development Turkey for the valuable award presented to Kordsa.”
