The purpose of the Zorlu Group 

The aim across the Zorlu Group is to continue our successes and do even better tomorrow. We create sustainable, profitable growth through innovation and responding to the changing world and business environment around us. Business can no longer separate growth from the need to deliver value back to society. Across the whole Group, we see growth and value creation as a connected aspiration. This includes across all the businesses in our supply chain and through our relationships with our customers and others we encounter on our journey.

We will grow by creating and harnessing the power of digital transformation and technology, the passion and commitment of our people, and the development of flexible and efficient business models. We will continue to invest in human capital, R&D and use the Sustainable Development Goals and our sustainability framework as a compass to provide the direction for sustainable innovation with a specific focus on engagement and collaboration with others.

Recognising that business operates within society, we value reduced inequalities, fair and decent work and active and inclusive communities. We are proud to dream of better futures, to collaborate to help fulfil society’s dreams and the global goals.'

We look forward to working more closely with Zorlu in the future, as part of the Global Council.
