We are at war with nature, if we win, we will lose! (Hubert Reeves)
According to the law, everyone has the right to live in a healthy and balanced environment. When environmental problems started to emerge with the effect of industrialization and urbanization, some people thought that this right belonged only to them and ignored the right to life of other living things. The consumption frenzy that started in the 20th century has unfortunately led people to exploit nature, which has been given as a blessing and a trust. This insatiability of people has caused them to endanger their own lives and futures. With the increase in environmental problems, some countries' efforts to take measures started, but it was seen that this was insufficient.
As a result, it is now clear to everyone that the measures must be taken globally. Now it is in everyone's interest to protect our earth, which is our common value and our source of life.
As EEC Electronics, we aim to establish, maintain and expand a development model that meets the needs of our company, our employees, our suppliers and our customers, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
All living things are part of the ecosystem in which they interact both with each other and with their inanimate environment. All elements of this ecosystem are interconnected in a complex pattern. Therefore, if one part is destroyed or damaged, other parts will have related consequences. Due to problems such as global warming, climate change, deterioration of the ecological order, pollution of resources, and unplanned urbanization caused by human beings, our natural environment is gradually deteriorating, and this situation also causes social and economic problems. As EEC Electronics, we are aware that sustainable development will function and develop properly with the combination of environmental, social and economic developments.
For this reason, as EEC Electronics, we believe that we will contribute to our business, our employees, our customers, our suppliers, our country and the world by acting environmentally friendly and using resources in an efficient and conscious way, and by this means, healthy and conscious societies will be formed.
In order to protect the ever-deteriorating ecological order in the world, as EEC Electronics, we comply with all regulations established within the framework of legal regulations in the entire process from the design of the product to its disposal. In addition to the existing regulations in this direction, we also comply with the directives established to ensure the compatibility of the legal measures taken at the national level in the countries affiliated to the European Union with the Customs Union agreement, and we undertake this approach with the environmental policy we have declared.

Importance of Emergency Lighting Products
Emergency lighting is a secondary type of lighting that activates immediately and automatically in the event that the normal lighting system in a building fails due to reasons such as fire, earthquake, terrorism, sabotage, and ensures that people are evacuated safely without being in the dark. The purpose of the emergency lighting system is to prevent loss of life by providing a fast and safe evacuation in an emergency.
