İOSBPurpose of Establishment

To ensure that the small and medium sized industrial businesses in Istanbul, particularly in the historical peninsula (Fatih-Eminönü), Kağıthane and Haliç, which pollute the environment and harm health with wastes, smoke, noise etc., thus harming the city and the population and constituting a negative element in urbanization, maintain their operations in a location in line with principles of urbanization, with full infrastructural support and without damaging the environment.


The Undersecretariat of Environmental Health, the Governorate of Istanbul and the Istanbul Municipality ruled to move these businesses out of town, after which persons in the industry chose to cooperate and requested land from the Metropolitan Municipality of Istanbul.
