ENKA considers audits and assessments as a core element of continual improvement and risk identification. Internal audit efforts are carried out throughout ENKA within the context of fighting against bribery and corruption and early identification of risks.
Internal Audit Committee that consists of ENKA Finance and Accounting, Cost Control, Quality Management, Sustainability and Compliance, Human Resources specialists, has been performing internal audits at ENKA Head Office Departments, subsidiaries and projects.
Internal Audit Committee, within the scope of its annual audit schedule, conducts process control, financial statements and reports, cost control, local and international regulations and compliance, anti-bribery and anti-corruption and quality management auditing activities.
These audits are performed and reported by its more than 30 competent and experienced auditors, in compliance with International Auditing Standards and corrective actions against identified findings are implemented expeditiously.
Each ENKA employee shall behave in an open and transparent manner about their processes and activities during those audits.
In this context ENKA internal audit teams conduct audits to assess the compliance against ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 standards, Corporate Quality, HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment), Sustainability and Compliance, Finance and Accounting, Human Resources requirements and procedures, ENKA Code of Business Conduct, local and international laws and regulations and contract requirements. In 2020, all ENKA projects and 9% of ENKA subsidiaries were audited by internal audit teams. Due to the pandemic measures, some of the audits planned to be conducted at the premises of the subsidiaries could not be conducted by the ENKA internal audit team, accordingly these audits were carried out by the internal audit teams of the subsidiaries instead. In addition to the regular audits, Ethics and Compliance audits were put into practice to assess the ENKA projects and subsidiaries against human rights, worker rights and anti-corruption and anti-bribery practices. Within the context of Ethics and Compliance audits a part of ENKA’s projects and subsidiaries operating in Turkey, Russia, Serbia, Kazakhstan, and Iraq were assessed against human rights, worker rights and anti-corruption and anti-bribery practices.
