Code Of Ethics
To ensure that Ethics Principles are understood and embraced by all employees, we trained 31% of our employees with one hour of training per person, which totaled 3,216 hours.
The Enerjisa Code of Conduct (Enetik) sets a common framework in all business processes. All Enerjisa employees pledge to follow this framework, which defines the foundation of our business practices. The Enerjisa Code of Conduct covers various essential ethical principles concerning but not limited to respect for human rights and environmental protection, creating sustainable relationships including anti-bribery and anti-corruption as well as fair competition, protection of personal data and privacy; protection of corporate information and assets, the principles concerning written and visual media and social media, conflicts of interest, political activities, association memberships, the acceptance and payment of money, gifts and donations, external duties, dress code, working with relative and Occupational Health and Safety. To ensure that Ethics Principles are understood and embraced by all employees, we trained 31% of our employees with one hour of training per person, which totaled 3,216 hours.
The Ethics Committee and Compliance Management Unit are responsible for the implementation of Enerjisa Code of Conduct. Compliance Officers guide employees proactively in this respect. In addition to ensuring that Enerjisa Code of Conduct is universally embraced, Compliance Management Unit monitors and informs employees about issues that may cause violation of the Enerjisa Code of Conduct. It also supports the Internal Audit with respect to violations therof.
All employees and stakeholders of Enerjisa can report cases of non-compliance with or violations of the Code of Conduct to Enerjisa Enetik via various channels.

You can also notify us via the Sabancı Holding ethics line. The head of the Internal Audit Department is the only person authorized to access notifications and is responsible for the security, confidentiality and management of all notification channels. Thoroughly examined notifications are reported to the executive management and the Disciplinary Board when deemed necessary. The Audit Committee is informed about notifications reported to the Disciplinary Board. In 2019, we received 102 notifications and resolved all of them.
Risks related to the violation of ethics are obtained from relevant units in qualitative risk assessment, performed twice a year and reported to the Early Risk Detection Committee or the Enerjisa Risk Management Committee. At the beginning of each year, we assess the risks that might arise from the violation of ethics with the Backtesting study, during which we assess the performance of the previous year’s risk reports. We examine the reported expectations and their probability and effects.
