Furthermore, as a signatory of UN Global Compact, we have pioneered the formation and signed the 'Declaration of Sustainable Finance'. Moreover during this period, we have signed an agreement with European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) with a 5 year maturity for €75 million financing, equivalent to approximately TL300 million that aims to expand the utilization of Green Mortgage loans and protect future generations through Green Buildings.
"We strive to create value for our customers, employees and all our stakeholders. We became the only company from Turkey qualified to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Emerging Markets Index for 3 consecutive years. Teachers Academy Foundation (ÖRAV), founded by Garanti, is granted Special Consultative Status by UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). I am thankful to my valuable colleagues who carry Garanti to the leadership position in the banking sector and are the pioneers of transformation on international platforms".
