Alternatif Bank has established and successfully pursues a Social and Environmental Risk Management System (SEMS) to outline the principles for the determination and assessment of the social and environmental risks of its lending facilities made or to be made available to its customers.

  • To determine the actions to be taken in case of non-compliance with these criteria,
  • To establish the authorizations and responsibilities of the Bank personnel within the scope of the SEMS policies,
  • To monitor and ensure the efficient implementation of SEMS policies and establish rules pertaining to its reporting.
