Aydem Retail and Gediz Retail, Became participants of the United Nations Global Compact

Our electricity retail companies Aydem Retail, operating in the provinces of Aydın, Denizli and Muğla and Gediz Retail, operating in the provinces of İzmir and Manisa have become participants of the United Nations Global Compact, the world's most comprehensive sustainability platform. 

With this development, our companies have committed to comply with the 10 principles of UN Global Compact in the fields of human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption in all the business processes; in addition to observing the aforementioned principles, by reporting our works in these fields every year, they will also demonstrate with concrete indicators that we have fulfilled their commitments. 

“We are proud to join the Global Compact with our 3 companies.”

Stating that we shall continue to work to make a difference in the energy sector with our “sustainable”, “innovative” and “people-oriented” approaches, Aydem Energy CEO İdris Küpeli said, “If we are to talk about a fully sustainable and balanced growth, we believe that we can only and only achieve this by investing in people and by holding on to our responsibilities to the ecosystem we are in and to all our stakeholders. In the upcoming period, when we look at the companies that have existed for many years, we will witness more and more that financial statements do not make sense on their own. As Aydem Energy, we always act with our responsibilities in order to achieve our sustainable corporate goals. We have implemented many projects embracing global principles by focusing on the sustainable satisfaction of our employees in our journey to become a “Great Workplace”, for which we have been certified by independent institutes. With the signature we have put for our Aydem Renewables company in 2020, we have promised that we would comply with the '10 principles' of the UN Global Compact. In 2021, we have arisen from the signatory status to the status of a participant. And now, we are happy to include our Aydem Perakende and Gediz Perakende companies in this strong commitment.”
