Global Reporting Initiative
TSKB published its first sustainability report in 2009 and has been doing so ever since. In 2013 it distinguished itself as the first member of the Turkish financial services industry to publish a sustainability report qualifying for GRI A+ certification. As of 2015, the sustainability report has been published in GRI G4 format.
In its sustainability reports, TSKB analyzes its customers’, business partners’, and employees’ expectations and it integrates them into its sustainability strategies.
TSKB became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact in 2010 and published its first Communication on Progress on 25 May 2011.
TSKB COP Raports:
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
TSKB joined the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in 2010.Launched in 2010, CDP Turkey’s first step was taken when, with the support of Akbank, the Sabancı University Corporate Governance Forum sent out letters to the firms included in the ISE-50 index, inviting them to publicly reveal their greenhouse gas emissions and to declare their climate change-combating policies.
Eleven ISE-50 companies accepted CDP Turkey’s invitation the same year. TSKB for its own part had been measuring its carbon footprint and publishing the results since 2006. It therefore expressed its pleasure over the launch of the Carbon Disclosure Project in Turkey and joined it as a voluntary member. TSKB received CDP Turkey’s “Climate Change Leadership” award in 2013 and 2015.
