Fidelity Bank staff during the clean-up exercise
In a display of commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility, Fidelity Bank Ghana, has organised a beach clean-up exercise to commemorate this year’s World Clean-Up Day.
The exercise, which unfolded against the backdrop of the bank’s ‘Sustainability Month’ celebration took place at the Sakumono Mighty Beach in Accra.
The bank’s employees yielded impressive results, including the removal of 5 kilograms of plastic waste, 200 kilograms of footwear, and a staggering 700 kilograms of dead fabric waste.
Mrs. Nana Yaa Ofori-Koree, Head of Partnerships, Sustainability, and Corporate Social Responsibility at Fidelity Bank, articulated the institution’s unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of sustainability and corporate responsibility through a multifaceted strategy grounded in three key pillars: sustainable finance, sustainable operations, and charitable activities.
“Beyond the realm of financial services, we believe that as a bank, our footprint should extend to making a meaningful and positive impact on the environment through sustainable practices,” Mrs. Ofori-Koree emphasized.
She further underscored, “We take immense pride in championing sustainability as a way of life, and we continually encourage our employees to step up and volunteer for noble causes such as this through the bank’s Employee Volunteer Programme (EVP).”
As World Clean-Up Day reinforces, the fight against global waste challenges is a collective effort, and Fidelity Bank Ghana’s actions serve as a beacon of hope and an inspiration for others to follow suit.
In a world increasingly cognizant of its environmental responsibilities, Fidelity Bank Ghana has taken a bold step forward, demonstrating that corporations can play a pivotal role in preserving our planet for future generations.
