Our Sustainable Smart City Approach
We grouped city issues into 4 fields;
Environment and Waste Management
We see these areas as the most crucial areas for building cities.
Transport and traffic consume energy and emissions harm the environment. Traffic plays a key role in air pollution and global warming. We aim for the society to develop a traffic planning system that will provide and at the same time not harm the world’s ecosystem.
``Traffic accounts for 50% of energy consumption in the city.``
All elements of traffic in the city must be controlled for a sustainable city. We carry out settlement and traffic studies in different parts of the city, such as residential areas, other regions, social and public areas, health and areas, financial and business areas.
Transportation and traffic in cities should be analyzed according to these components;
E nergy in transportation systems
Sustainable City Solutions
Solutions for companies
Two important analyzes should be made to create a city with sustainable energy. The first is the analysis of existing infrastructures and how these infrastructures can be changed, renewed, and turned into renewable energy. The second is planning the transmission infrastructures of zero carbon emission energy to be built in the future.
How to create a city with sustainable energy?
How to create a city with sustainable energy? Along with these analyzes, it is necessary to consider the city plan and the characteristic features of the city. It is important how urban land use functions will choose a place in the city, how the connection and relationship between functions will be constructed. The main purpose of the study is to define the gradual transformation of the city into a sustainable energy city. This includes examining energy use in four categories;
Heating and cooling of residential and office buildings
Specific industry uses (heat treatment)
Environment and Waste Management
Population growth and technological-economic developments cause an increase in production and therefore cause an increase in energy and raw material consumption as well. The increase in resource consumption in recent years has enabled industrial countries to grow economically and to increase their living standards. However, natural resources such as forests, clean water, and air have also caused a decrease in biodiversity.
How to create a city with a sustainable environment and waste management ?
Up to a point, the world can regenerate itself against waste recycling and harmful ultraviolet rays on soil and water (Stratospheric Ozone Layer). But lately, it is harming the ecosystem as waste exceeds the world’s cycle limits.
A sustainable environment is examined in 4 different areas;
Business and industrial areas,
Social facilities and public spaces,
Green and recreational areas
Waste management concepts; It is developed in different areas such as environmental policies, general city waste management concepts, remote heating and cooling, industrial cleaner production policies, creation of waste management concepts.
Sustainable societies are healthy ones that can renew themselves economically, environmentally, and socially. Rather than approaching the solution of problems piece by piece and attributing them to their people, they seek solutions with a holistic approach.
What is a sustainable community from DSEIN's perspective?
Sustainable societies work not only for the short-term, next stage but also for a long-term perspective, focusing on both the present and the future.
The success of a sustainable society can be understood through its commitment to the city in which it lives and its participation in policymaking;
Active, organized, and conscious citizenship
Impressive, effective, and participatory leadership
Participatory, engaged, and healthy community institutes, services, and jobs
As a result, the sustainable society manages the natural and financial resources of the people in terms of their needs to benefit from them appropriately and equally for future generations.
