Rönesans Holding is not only responsible as a corporation, but also as a member of the societies it conducts business. Therefore, Rönesans gives great importance to social responsibility activities, such as share value or give back programs. Local Communities also receive the support of Rönesans through charity, sponsorship and donation programs. Rönesans Holding believes that its work has full value only then when it helps and shares with others.

Therefore, Rönesans is committed to supporting the communities that host its projects and offices. As a matter of fact, Rönesans Holding has established a specialized organization, the Rönesans Education Foundation (REV), to organize such community programs and social responsibility activities.
Rönesans Education Foundation (REV) was founded in 2009 with the initiatives, support and faith in the supremacy of knowledge shared by Ilıcak Family, primarily by Mr. Bekir Ilıcak, Honorary Chairman of Rönesans Holding. The purpose of the foundation is to support the education and personal development of children and youth. REV carries out educational programs and social projects to encourage young people’s awareness of their own potential as well as to contribute to their growth as versatile, educated and productive individuals.
In addition to financial support with the REV Scholarship Program run with due attention to non-discrimination, the foundation offers great opportunities for personal and professional development of young people.

The importance was attached to the fact that the projects are sustainable, environment- and user-friendly and economic.
The jury members evaluated the projects under such criteria as sustainability, recycling, energy efficiency, mitigation of the waste, use of innovative materials, economic use of water, creation of a sustainable life and educational fields, and thus chose the winners.
