HNB marks World Environment Day with the HNB ‘Green Pledge’

Tuesday, 05 June 2018

HNB, Sri Lanka’s premier private sector bank, will mark United Nation’s World Environment Day by recommitting to the HNB Green Pledge – a promise by every HNB employee to factor in environmental standards and consciousness into their day’s work and office environment. HNB encourages teams to take ‘one green step’ by pledging to make environmentally friendly change and record their progress. Having first committed to the Green Pledge 10 years ago, the Bank has evolved in its eco-conscious journey, within the office and branches as well as in communities that they operate in.

From the Bank’s award winning green buildings, symbols of the future of built-in technology to creating renewable energy at branches; from reducing carbon footprint through paperless operations to taking head-on the pollution issue at Sri Pada (Adams Peak), HNB’s Green Pledge has become the pivotal focus of corporate governance. Part of the environmental consciousness is the endeavor of financing select projects that fit within this mantra.

HNB’s Head of HR, Chiranthi Cooray said “As Sri Lankans, we have had the privilege of being heirs to a priceless cultural and environmental legacy and we are pleased to be associated with positive initiatives which serve to preserve and enhance this legacy for future generations”.

“One such initiative, taken up by our staff, is to create awareness for a cleaner environment. HNB has been in the forefront of clean-up projects over the past few years, like beach cleaning and cleaning of the sacred peak, Sri Pada”, she noted.

Having funded renovations for the Indikatupahana Ambalama rest room, at the highest point along the path towards Adam’s Peak, to providing safe drinking water and sanitation facilities to the pilgrims a few years ago, HNB employees realized that garbage pollution on the peak, travelled by millions of worshippers each season, was not only an eyesore but an environmental hazard.

Using their historic legacy of a Bank that started business in Hatton in 1888, this year, HNB commenced their ‘clean Sri Pada’ project from that very location. Under their CSR pillar, ‘Care for Nature’, employees joined hands with the Central Environmental Authority, Leo Club of Colombo Knights and each other to collect the choking bio-degradable and non bio degradable garbage – such as polythene, pet bottles, plastic wrapping of food along the route starting from the top of the mountain.
