Environmental Indicators

İşbank conducts efficiency projects to minimize the environmental impact of its operations. An Environmental Management System in international standards has been established at the Bank in 2019. In line with international standards, various environmental indicators are monitored at the Head Office buildings and branches and all wastes are separated and recycled in the Head Office and TUTOM buildings within the scope of ISO14001 Environmental Management System Standard.

Please click for the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Certificates.

İşbank's main buildings such as the Head Office, operations center and data center were designed to minimize the environmental impacts. caused by the operations of Bank.

İşbank Head Office building located in Levent, İstanbul holds the BREEAM In-use Excellent certificate.

Tuzla Technology and Operations Center (TUTOM) obtained the LEED Gold certificate in 2017.

The Bank's Tuzla Data Center (Atlas) Building has been certified with LEED v4 Gold for Data Centers. Atlas is the first data center at these standards in Turkey.

Energy consumption is reduced by using the energy, which is generated during cooling in Atlas Data Center building, for the heating of office areas. At Atlas Data Center, the data halls where IT cabinets are located are air-cooled uninterruptedly with packet type cooling devices based on the principle of redundancy,. After the cabinets are cooled, the heated air is mixed with the outdoor air and used for heating the air conditioning systems; thus, energy is saved.

İşbank continues its efficiency efforts in its service buildings with a perspective of continuous improvement perspective. Efficient use of energy and resources is aimed by the efforts within the scope of minimizing operational environmental impacts.

İşbank continues its efforts to reduce the amount of paper used in operations through digitalization projects. With the project launched by İşbank together with the TEMA Foundation in 2012, Bank delivers paper waste to the TEMA Foundation, and the Foundation plants a sapling for each 100 kg of paper donated.

1 The emission and consumption data reported in 2018 included the Head Office buildings, all domestic branches and regional directorates, and in 2019, the Atlas Data Center was also added to this data. The increase in electricity consumption in 2019 was partly due to the inclusion of the data center.
2 Total water consumption = Total amount of discharged water
3 2018-2019-2020 data only includes the Head Office buildings. 2021 data includes the Head Office buildings as well as the service buildings with ISO 14001 certification.
4 Electronic and medical waste was included in 2018 figures. It was not included in other years.
