Tekfen Business Ethics Principles
Erected on the twin cornerstones of technology and science, the foundations of both Tekfen itself and its culture of ethical behaviour were laid in 1956 when three young and enterprising civil engineers– Feyyaz Berker, Ali Nihat Gökyiğit, Necati Akçağlılar–joined forces to turn their ideals into reality. The Tekfen Code of Business Ethics consists of the business ethics culture and values that its founders espoused and abided by.
Tekfen’s business practices are informed by ethical rules which grew out of the ways in which its founders acted towards employees, the community, and the environment over the years.
The core values to which Tekfen companies, Tekfen senior management, and all Tekfen personnel are committed consist of honesty, fairness, equality, transparency, accountability, compassion, respect, patience, and tolerance.
Along with its core values, Tekfen’s dealings with customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, business partners, competitors, the environment, and the community with respect to the issues of private information confidentiality, conflicts of interest, and compliance with the requirements of laws and regulations are also governed by mandatory rules which are internalised and publicly disclosed.
