İŞBANK AND
SUSTAINABILITY
Abiding by sustainability as an important
responsibility since its foundation in
1924, İşbank puts its existing value
creation capability to maximum use, with
the objectives of ensuring the welfare,
development and growth of society
through a period filled with challenges and
volatilities.
The Bank is focused on fulfilling its business
model in the most effective way under the
guidance of its strategy, and on producing
and sharing more value.
İşbank’s contribution to society in the
most general sense is manifested in the
added value furnished to the economy and
is founded on four priorities: customers,
employees, society and the environment.
İşbank released its first sustainability
report.
İşbank presented its first sustainability
report to its stakeholders in 2013.
The study deals with the Bank’s strategies
on the four axes of sustainability, its
performance and future targets.
The report is accessible on İşbank’s
corporate website at

Our Commitment To Global Compact
At the World Economic Forum held on
31 January 1999, the then-United Nations
Secretary General Kofi Annan urged
business world leaders, companies, the
UN, workers unions and nongovernmental
organizations to join the Global Compact,
an international initiative in support of
universal environmental and social principles
aligned with the Millennium Development
Goals. The ten principles that make up
the United Nations Global Compact were
shared with the global public at the UN
Headquarters on 26 June 2000.
The 10 principles of Global Compact are
based on universally accepted statements in
the areas of:
• Human rights,
• Labor rights,
• The environment and anti-corruption.
As a role model and pioneering practitioner
of the topics stipulated by the Global
Compact, and particularly of employee
rights, İşbank declared its commitment
under the UN Global Compact to the UN
Secretary General’s Office on 7 March 2012.
The periodic activities that İşbank
implements within the scope of the Global
Principles as well as the actualizations
achieved are addressed in the Sustainability
Report 2012.
