Ethical Principles and Compliance Policies

Together with its affiliates and subsidiaries, Tüpraş fully embraces its responsibility to contribute to a sustainable economy and society and to nurture a people- and society-friendly workplace environment. Our Code of Ethics, setting forth the fundamental principles of behavior in our company, as well as our transparent policies and standards, are our primary tool for ensuring the highest ethical compliance among our employees and business partners.

We are all guided by the words of our Group’s founder, Vehbi Koç: “It is our primary principle to act in good faith and understanding in all our relations, abiding by all legal and moral compasses, and to gain equal and mutual benefit.”

We have always observed ethical values, transparent and fair business activities, universal human rights, and the law. Under the “Compliance Project” carried out between 2018–2020 by our parent company Koç Holding, we updated our Code of Ethics to adjust our ethical values to the rapidly changing world.
