By Nse Anthony-Uko

(Sundiata Finance) — First City Monument Bank (FCMB) has emerged as the Best Environmental Supporting Financial Institution in Africa at the African Clean-up Award for Excellence 2017 held in Ghana on July 8, 2017.

The award, organised by African Clean-Up Initiative and endorsed by Let’s Do It World Clean-up Foundation in Estonia, is Africa’s first ever-independent clean-up award.

It recognises and honours outstanding and brilliant environmentalists, health and safety experts as well as philanthropists that are passionate about Environmental Sustainability in Africa. This year’s edition received several submissions from various corporate organisations across Africa. The ceremony was attended by distinguished personalities within the public and private sectors in the continent and other parts of the world.

In a statement conferring the award on FCMB, African Clean-Up Initiative explained that, “the bank is an environmentally-friendly financial institution that upholds best sustainable practices and demonstrates administrative excellence in dealing and supporting environmentally sustainable projects and social impact enterprise.”

Commenting on the award, the Group Head, Corporate Affairs of FCMB, Mr. Diran Olojo, said the development is a further confirmation that the impact of the Bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, with environmental sustainability as a core pillar, is being felt and appreciated globally.

According to him, “as a responsible corporate citizen, we place a high premium on not just what we achieve as an organisation, but how these are achieved, taking into consideration the impact on the environment. Hence, our business activities and operations are designed to ensure that we lend responsibly, promote financial inclusion, encourage diversity, adhere to health and safety standards, create awareness on environmentally friendly activities and reduce (or totally avoid where possible) negative impact on the environment.”

While commending African Clean-Up Initiative for deeming FCMB worthy of the award, Mr. Olojo assured that the Bank is committed to championing and executing activities that have the capacity to convert environmental challenges into opportunities in line with its values as a simple, helpful and reliable financial institution. ‘’We will continue to do doing the right things consistently to ensure sustainable development across the various spheres of business and service delivery’’, he stressed.
