The Sustainability Committee meets regularly in order to monitor the progress of and to provide input to all sustainability efforts. The Committee is deliberately structured to integrate sustainability concerns and opportunities into all operations, products and services. In addition, this structure ensures all efforts are consistent with internal policies and related regulations. The Sustainability Committee’s role is to agree on strategic direction and action plans for the Bank. The Sustainability Committee meets to review and take decisions on recommendations raised by the Sustainability Team and functional representatives regarding sustainability related topics. In 2018, the Responsible Business Committee convened with the attendance of the members of the Sustainability Committee and discussed the related topics. In addition, the Committee ensures the integration of all material aspects and environmental and social factors, products and services, and decision-making mechanisms.

Garanti BBVA established the full time Sustainability Team within the body of Project Finance Department in 2012 with the aim of working more efficiently in the area of sustainability.

Regularly reporting to the Sustainability Committee, the Sustainability Team works in cooperation with other departments of the Bank in the process of implementing the decisions into practice. Following the progress regularly, the Team ensures the consolidation and assessment of sustainability data throughout the Bank within the scope of Bank’s objectives, and coordinates the gathering of information and data from other departments. Furthermore the Sustainability Representatives have been assigned since 2012 in order to gather data and support the application of the decisions made by the Sustainability Committee in the units or branches where they work. As of the end of 2018, there are more than 1,000 Sustainability Representatives in charge of working in coordination with the Sustainability Team.
