Our Partnerships and Memberships

At ING Türkiye, we are taking a role in social, economic, and environmental transformation through partnerships and memberships with leading institutions and organizations in our field. By signing the UN Global Compact Sustainable Finance Declaration, we are sharing our expertise and guidance in this important international platform with Türkiye. We are actively involved in the working groups of the Turkish Banks Association and the International Investors Association

Additionally, we are strengthening our efforts in this area by being a member of the Istanbul International Energy and Climate Center (IICEC) at Sabancı University. As a member of the Turkish Exporters Assembly, we organize events focused on sharing experiences on sustainable business models and border carbon applications. We also support the work of the Business and Sustainable Development Association, of which we are also a member.

In partnership with WWF-Türkiye, we are also implementing various projects to support nature-oriented activities and increase societal awareness. In this context, we celebrate our customers' birthdays by offering support for WWF-Türkiye's work on their behalf.

We shape our gender equality efforts for businesses based on the United Nations' Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs), and we are included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index to increase the visibility of our work in this field.
