Corporate Social Responsibility

As Garanti Pension, based on our responsibility towards society as a whole as well as our shareholders, we are obliged to protect the bright future of both our customers and employees; we guide them, add value and make them feel Garanti’s guarantee.

Since our foundation, we have been acting with the sense of social responsibility as a company and placed great emphasis upon developing related projects. One of our main priorities is to realize sustainable, long-term and value-added projects, about children’s education and health in particular.

We base all our social responsibility activities on the voluntary participation and support of our employees. As a company, we expect our employees to consider the economic, social and environmental effects of their activities, manage these activities with a sense of social responsibility and give top priority to society’s development on their agenda.

As Garanti Pension, these are our core principles for our corporate social responsibility activities and applications:

    • Develop and implement projects that contribute to the society and aim to improve the life quality of individuals.
    • Realize and support projects on especially children’s health and education.
    • As it is one of the most fundamental social problems in Turkey; carry out activities to help stop children working on the streets or any working environments, continue their educations and raise public awareness on the subject.
    • Ensure active participation of employees and stakeholders in the project recommendation, development and application stages of all social responsibility activities.
    • Form close collaboration with non-governmental organizations like Ayhan Şahenk Foundation and Community Volunteers Foundation, in addition to our stand-alone projects.
    • Focus on the issue of 'hobbies', which is very important in making people happy with higher quality lives in both their present and retirement days; encourage people to get hobbies and therefore, raise awareness for hobbies.
