Employee Rights and Business Ethics

As Zorlu Enerji, we embrace complying with the fundamental human rights determined by international rules and we support these rules' protection as our fundamental principles. We protect and manage our employees' rights within the framework of the current legal legislation, employment contracts, and ethical rules concluded between the employee and the employer.

We implement and follow the requirements within the scope of the protection of personal data. The personal data of our employees is stored within the organization within the framework of confidentiality principles. In line with the same principles, our employees act in a manner that strictly respects the confidentiality of all technical information, including registered practices, company names, and database information.

In line with emerging needs, we also carry out specialized certification systems for employee rights in the companies operating under Zorlu Enerji. For the production plants of Zorlu Doğal Elektrik Üretim A.Ş. -one of our companies-, we have received the SA 8000 (Social Accountability 8000) certificate. It evaluates occupational health and safety, compulsory labor, child labor, discrimination, working hours and wages, disciplinary practices, and management systems.

Zorlu Enerji's Ethical Principles have been shared with all our employees, and compulsory training has been provided on this subject. In case of any doubt regarding Ethical Principles' content and/or witnessing a behavior or practice contrary to the rules, we have put special communication channels into use for all our employees to convey or consult their question. Our employees can reach the Ethical Principles Notification Line via e-mail and two dedicated phone lines at any time of the day.

Employee Ambassador Application

At Zorlu Enerji, we are aware that our energy is derived from our employees. Accordingly, we launched our "Management Employee Ambassador" program to listen out our employees' voices working at the locations. Our employees will reach the assigned Employee Ambassadors in their region for any problems they encounter regarding their working life and any messages they want to convey. We will coordinate the Field and Central operations at the highest level through regular meetings every month, evaluate the incoming requests, and plan our actions.
