Pursuant to Articles 1 and 2 of United Nations Global Compact Principles, the company has declared this commitment explicitly.

NON-DISCRIMINATION MANAGEMENT APPROACH

The concept of “diversity” for Doğuş Otomotiv involves accepting and respecting the religious, structural and cultural differences of employees, customers and other social stakeholders.

Doğuş Otomotiv values diversity, and also believes that it enriches an organization.

Doğuş Otomotiv is committed to being a great place to work for all dedicated and highly qualified candidates, regardless of their diverse cultures and backgrounds; and an employer that develops employees and protects their rights.

Doğuş Otomotiv employs an “Employees and Great Workplace Policy” independent from religion, language, race, gender, age, ethnicity, disability, nationality or other social statuses protected by legislation. The company engages in events that align with its own policies, offers sponsorships, affiliates with organizations and institutions, and only cooperates with organizations and institutions that adopt the same approach.

CHILD LABOR MANAGEMENT APPROACH

Dogˆus¸ Otomotiv, as a signatory of United Nations Global Compact, does not allow child labor at any stage of its operations under any circumstances. Regional Directors of After-sales Services are informed of this approach and supported during recruitment of staff to be employed at Authorized After-sales Service Centers. This issue is incorporated into and assured by supplier agreements, and taken into consideration during annual audits.

FORCED AND COMPULSORY LABOR MANAGEMENT APPROACH

Doğuş Otomotiv, as a signatory of United Nations Global Compact, does not allow forced or compulsory labor under any condition that violates laws and regulations at any stage of its operations. This is also applicable for Dogˆus¸ Otomotiv’s suppliers, all of its subsidiaries and affiliates. Supplier audits include relevant criteria.

All employees of our Company are insured starting from the first day of employment, and this is assured during both internal and external audits. As required by law, every year in January all employees are informed that they may be asked to work overtime when necessary, and their consent is obtained. Dogˆus¸ Otomotiv also requires all Authorized Dealers and After-sales Service Centers and suppliers within its sphere of influence to show the same sensitivity, and performs necessary audits.

SECURITY PRACTICES MANAGEMENT APPROACH

Security services are procured from third party companies in all regions where Dogˆus¸ Otomotiv operates. As with all suppliers, Dogˆus¸ Otomotiv principles and policies have been shared with the security service provider in a protocol, and necessary information has been communicated.
