We are proud to announce that Garanti BBVA International has been awarded the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) certification. This prestigious certification underscores our commitment to robust environmental management practices, with a particular focus on minimizing the direct environmental impact of our office operations.

As a financial institution, we recognize the importance of addressing both our indirect environmental impact, stemming from our financing activities, and our direct impact. Achieving the ISO 14001 EMS certification demonstrates our dedication to implementing effective environmental management systems that reduce our ecological footprint. This certification covers various aspects of our operations, ensuring that we adhere to the highest international standards for environmental stewardship. 

Employee awareness and engagement play a critical role in our environmental management efforts.

The ISO 14001 EMS standard is recognized globally, highlighting our alignment with international best practices in environmental management. By obtaining this certification, we not only reaffirm our commitment to sustainability but also set a benchmark for other financial institutions to follow. 

This certification aims for continuous improvement, requiring us to undergo annual surveillance audits to ensure ongoing compliance and progress. Additionally, every three years, we will undergo a re-certification audit to validate our sustained commitment to environmental management excellence. 

At Garanti BBVA International, we believe that sustainable business practices are essential for long-term success. We are dedicated to continually improving our environmental performance and contributing to a greener future.
