NDB’S Human Resources Department signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Wildlife and Nature Protection Society of Sri Lanka (WNPS) to create awareness on environmental conservation in Sri Lanka among the bank’s staff members and family, in the form of training and awareness sessions.
NDB is a customer centric organisation and the bank’s product development revolves around the customers’ wants and needs. The bank strives to provide its customers the most convenient and the most relevant product. As a result the bank has developed innovative products and services where its customers are provided with personalised value, with minimal impact on the environment.
Furthermore, NDB together with the youth wing of WNPS recently conducted a number of programmes to increase awareness of nature and the natural world among students in various schools.
The aim of this project, launched by WNPS and sponsored by NDB, is to interact with schools, both in Colombo and beyond; to work with the students and teachers on specific conservation projects. This would, hopefully, be through their existing environmental/wildlife societies, if they have them. If not, the WNPS would assist them in the setting up such a society in the school. While ensuring that corporate sustenance is vital, NDB simultaneously places importance on developing our society through many of the bank’s flagship sustainability initiatives. NDB has partnered many success stories of Sri Lanka and firmly believes that an environmentally responsible culture is essential for the development of a nation.
