Turkey - Istanbul is as nice as my home
In 2003, the Municipality of Istanbul launched a metropolitan project which aims to carry out the renovation of the façades of buildings in Istanbul, while preserving the historical and cultural harmony.
The objectives of Lafarge's Turkish gypsum unit, Entegre, were to increase Lafarge Entegre brand awareness and to become a preferred supplier for Istanbul Metropolitan and District Municipalities.
Originally, the purpose of this project was essentially for trade. Lafarge Entegre offered 30% extra discount to Istanbul City for the purchase of Colormatik color façade application. However the results exceeded expectations. Operations carried out due to this promotional project led to a visible and much appreciated renovation of part of Istanbul's architectural heritage.
"Try to find the right project, at the right time" is the golden rule. From now on, Lafarge Entegre is one of the preferred suppliers of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. The municipality has begun the renovation of façades in the city.
Financial donation: US$ 50,000 (approx. €42,000).
