ecording is a social enterprise that develops sustainable and innovative environmental technologies against the global climate crisis.
Due to the increasing effects of the climate crisis, forest ecosystems’ importance has grown even more due to their crucial role in carbon sequestration, reducing biodiversity loss, and preventing temperature rise on the planet. With the technologies it develops in line with these results, ecording offers solutions where individuals and organizations can positively and directly fight the climate crisis and aim for a more livable world.
ecording is a social enterprise. It means that it has a mission of solving a social or environmental problem, has profit goals, and uses that profit to produce benefits to the world. ecording has a commercial status of “limited company.”
ecording, geliştirdiği insansız hava araçları ve yazılım teknolojileri üzerine çalışmalarını sürdürmektedir. ecoDrone; ekibimiz tarafından geliştirilen ve tohum topu ile doğrudan ekim çalışmalarında kullanılan insansız hava aracıdır. ecordingApp ise; dünyanın ve çevrenin yararına verilen görevlerin tamamlanması ile edinilen puanlarla, anlaşmalı markalardan ödüller kazandıran bir mobil uygulamadır.
Kısa vadeli hedefimiz; iş birliklerimizi artırarak yaptığımız çalışmalarla her sektörden şirket ve kurum ile entegre olarak dünyaya tohumlardan oluşan hayat potansiyelleri kazandırma çalışmalarına hız kesmeden devam etmektir. 2030 yılına kadar 1 Milyar tohum topu atışı hedefimiz ile Türkiye’deki ve dünyadaki karbon ayak izini azaltmayı aynı zamanda çevre bilinci ve çevre teknolojileri konularında öncü kurumlardan biri olmayı hedeflemekteyiz. Bunun yanı sıra şubat 2021’de açtığımız Hollanda ofisimiz ile de Türkiye’de başlayan bu süreci dünya genelinde geliştirmeyi hedeflemekteyiz.
ecoDrone is an unmanned aerial vehicle developed by ecording. ecoDrone delivers airborne seed ball shoots in hard-to-reach areas that need to be afforested.
Seed balls to improve and accelerate the germination possibilities of seeds; it is a result of covering the seeds with a specially prepared mixture with clay, powder fertilizer, various minerals, and forest soil taken from the natural germination area of the species to be studied and turning them into marble-sized balls.
Thanks to the seeds’ covering, they are protected from conditions such as cold, extreme heat, wind, and forest creatures eating the seeds at minimum cost. Besides, it creates a suitable environment for the seed to germinate in terms of temperature and humidity, regardless of the external environmental conditions. In the studies published by the General Directorate of Forestry, it has been experimentally determined that bird damages have a high rate of negative effects of 42% against the larch species’ germination.
People living in rural areas are one of the groups experiencing income inequality due to the climate crisis. This segment, whose livelihoods are mostly agriculture and animal husbandry, is also faced with income inequality as they are directly affected by the global climate crisis. Women living in areas close to our operation sites and exposed to income inequality due to the climate crisis are trained on materials specially developed by ecording for the production of seed balls, and the production of seed balls is carried out with these women. Then, with the purchase of the seed balls produced from those women, planting operations are carried out in the fields determined by the General Directorate of Forestry. In this way, ecording contributes to the additional income of women affected by the global climate crisis and fights directly with women against the climate crisis.
As a result of the R&D studies initiated in approximately 2018 and carried out with the support of the General Directorate of Forestry, Central Anatolia Forestry Research Institute, and Artvin Coruh University, germination at an average of 36% is observed for six different seed species that have been shot in 5 different fields so far. The said germination rates vary according to factors such as the working area, the type of seed used, and the sowing time, and it is between a minimum of 9% and a maximum of 62%. Studies are continuing to increase productivity day by day through R&D.
Ekim çalışması yapılan sahalar, Orman Genel Müdürlüğü tarafından ağaçlandırmaya uygun alanlar olarak Ar-Ge amacıyla tahsis edilmektedir. Ülkemizdeki tüm ağaçlandırma sahaları Orman Genel Müdürlüğü tarafından yönetilmektedir ve uygunlukları yine Orman Genel Müdürlüğü tarafından belirlenmektedir. Her bir saha için belirlenen ve sağlanması kanunen zorunlu bir başarı alt sınırı bulunmaktadır. Değerlendirme sürecine göre saha üzerinde tamamlama ve farklı aksiyon planları uygulanmaktadır.
Çalışma sahalarının verimlilik hedefleri, Orman Genel Müdürlüğü tarafından belirlenmektedir. Sonrasında, ecording’in sorumlu ekibi ve OGM tarafından belirli dönemlerde gözlemler gerçekleştirilir. İhtiyaç duyulması durumunda sahada ecoDrone ile tamamlama atışları gerçekleştirilir.
ecording generates income from corporate service sales as a result of collaborations with brands.
Every purchased product and service turns into a seed ball in nature. For example, when you see an ecoDrone icon on a product you purchased, you realize that a seed ball will be shot with the ecoDrone for that product sale. In addition, by scanning the QR code placed on the products, you can access detailed information such as when, where, and what type of seed ball will be shot, and you can view the most up-to-date photos from the field. In the long term, we work to ensure that individuals and brands see and be aware of their impact on nature with this business model.
ecordingApp is a mobile application where you can earn awards with the ecoPoints you make when you prove that you fulfill the tasks assigned to the world’s benefit. The mentioned mobile application will be live in the second quarter of 2021.
#1follower1tree is a corporate social responsibility project and includes a social media campaign conducted by ecording for two years. Within this project’s scope, ecoDrone drops a seed ball on behalf of each follower who follows ecording's social media accounts during each operation period. Besides, these operations are regularly shared through ecording's social media accounts, adhering to the ecording transparency principles. Within the scope of the project, ecoDrone dropped more than 70,000 seed balls so far.
