Standard Chartered celebrates world environment day

In celebration of World Environment Day, Standard Chartered Sri Lanka partnered with the Colombo Municipal Council to clean-up the Viharamahadevi park and assist in planting trees in the park.

The Bank’s Global Head of Consumer Banking, Steve Bertamini and the Mayor of Colombo Omar Kamil participated together with volunteers of the Bank’s Staff.

The Bank has a volunteer policy where each employee is encouraged to spend two days per year on paid leave supporting a community initiative.

In lieu of World Environment Day over 20 Standard Chartered Bank staff helped the Municipal Council workers to begin efforts to clean up the rain water drainage network within the park.

Staff volunteers also helped weed and replant flower beds, collect garbage in the park and plant and sponsor over 50 Ehela Trees.

Bertamini attending this special event and on his first visit to Sri Lanka said, ‘World Environment Day is a great opportunity to illustrate our commitment to positive action. I’m proud to see the enthusiasm of our employees to do their part on this day.

Standard Chartered Sri Lanka has been actively involved in environmental protection initiatives through which the Bank has helped to raise awareness of climate change and encourage positive action to tackle its impacts.
