Nowadays, societies expect institutions to deliver much more than purely commercial and financial success. Our stakeholders, shareholders, employees and clients ask us to differentiate ourselves from the others not only through our product and service offer but also social projects.
DenizBank is well aware of this responsibility. With this in mind, we realize projects that contribute to social development in various areas under the light of social indicators on one hand, and shape our activities with the principle of being an open and transparent institution as per our corporate governance principles on the other.
Within the framework of this important responsibility that we carry, we support particularly those projects aiming at social awareness in the field of education, culture, arts and sports, and we exert our best efforts to contribute to the modern and advanced Turkey aimed by Atatürk. While contributing to economy and sustainable future of our country via our financial activities, we aim at providing the same level of contribution to social sphere by supporting education, culture, arts and sports.
We focus on projects contributing to development of our country in many fields with the purpose of unearthing our cultural values falling through the cracks, protecting our rich culture and arts heritage, and developing it with new moves, supporting our internationally recognized, successful people involved in culture and arts. Through DenizKültür publications prepared to develop our societys awareness on history and to share scientific and objective research related to our recent history with big masses, we have the mission of further enriching our national heritage and carrying it over to the future
Knowing that economic welfare cannot benefit to our society and country unless accompanied by social welfare, we carry our usual high quality stamp affixed on our banking services to our efforts in the field of culture, arts and sports; and lay our stones on the road to sustainable future with the support of our "Sailors". On the other hand, we consider supporting all those in need through donations and assistance in those areas requiring social solidarity as a fundamental principle of our corporate social responsibility.
Upon approval of its Management, in line with principles and limits determined by Capital Markets Board, Turkish Commercial Code, Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency, and as per its corporate social responsibility policy, DenizBank provides donations and assistance to foundations, associations, institutions, public bodies working in the field of social responsibility, culture, arts, education and sports and all individuals in need working to add value to the society in the same fields. DenizBank publishes list of all its donations and assistance in its Annual Report; and inform all the shareholders during the Ordinary General Assembly of the related year.
