Sustainable Banking

For 70 years, we have proudly carried out our aim of being Turkey’s Sustainable Bank!  

We offer support to our farmers, tradespeople and SME customers across Turkey for generations and lead the way in the Turkish banking sector by developing our “Community Banking” mission from a “Sustainable Banking” perspective. We transfer local and international resources to environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive investments more strategically to set an example for the finance sector and
take the “Sustainable Bank of Turkey” title to the future.
