ComBank wins international award

A Commercial Bank official receives the award

The Commercial Bank CSR Trust won the Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Award (AREA) for 'Social Empowerment' at the 2014 awards ceremony in New Delhi.

Considered as Asia's leading award for responsible entrepreneurship, the AREA award is presented annually in seven categories by Enterprise Asia, a non-governmental organisation in pursuit of entrepreneurship development across the Asian region.

It aims at inculcating a culture of ethics and universal justice in the running of businesses as part of a sustainable entrepreneurial framework.

The award presented to Commercial Bank is in recognition of the Bank's contributions to the education sector in Sri Lanka with three nationally-scaled programs - the donation of IT laboratories to schools, the annual presentation of scholarships and laptops to undergraduates and a program to promote English literacy among rural children.

These on-going programs have cumulatively empowered more than 125,000 children and young adults and continue to evolve and grow in scope and reach.

"We are encouraged to be assessed alongside our peers not only in Sri Lanka but across the South Asian region for this award," said Managing Director Ravi Dias.

"Responsible entrepreneurship is one of the cornerstones of Commercial Bank's corporate value structure and recognition of this nature will inspire the team to even higher levels of commitment," he said.
