The main focus of the paper is to highlight the importance of sustainability and SMEs for Turkey since they generate 99.8% of all employment in the country. Also, this study underlines the Turkey’s perspective of sustainability while elucidating the supporting programs on sustainability for SMEs. The findings of this study reveal five major steps to achieve the determined sustainability goals for SMEs in Turkey. These steps are raising awareness, describing the sustainable business model, understanding the future benefits, developing a road map, and implementing and monitoring the sustainability process, respectively.
