While climate change constitutes one of the most important risks threatening our world, İzmir Development Agency works on the basis of green and blue growth approaches for the sustainable development of İzmir.
While these efforts make İzmir’s investment environment eco-friendly,
İzmir prioritizes attracting foreign investments that will contribute to its sustainable development.
In this context, clean energy, clean technologies, software and IT services constitute the priority sectors of İzmir, while İzmir positions itself as “City of Technology, Powered by Clean Energy”.
One of the most important projects executed to make İzmir’s investment environment eco-friendly is the BEST For Energy (Boosting Effective and Sustainable Transformation for Energy) Project. The project is aimed at developing a competitive cluster in the Clean Energy and Clean Technology Industry in İzmir.
The BEST For Energy project is governed by İzmir Development Agency in partnership with the Energy Industrialists and Businessmen Association (ENSIA). The project is carried out within the scope of the Competitive Industries Program, financed within the framework of financial cooperation of the European Union and the Republic of Turkey and conducted by the Ministry of Industry and Technology.
