HNB PLC, has announced its latest achievements in sustainability, underscoring its commitment to environmental stewardship and a greener future for Sri Lanka.

In a bold move underscoring its dedication to a sustainable future, HNB has earmarked funds from its successful paper recycling programme to support a series of ambitious green projects commencing in 2024.

The initiatives will enhance energy efficiency, promote renewable energy and further reduce the carbon footprint.

The bank implemented innovative initiatives and forward-thinking strategies to position itself as a critical driver in the nation’s journey towards sustainability. HNB achieved a significant reduction in paper consumption by 60% through its aggressive push towards digitalization and waste minimization efforts.

The paper recycling programme mitigated its ecological footprint while supporting future sustainability projects financially.

CHRO/Head of Sustainable Business Unit Kindravasan stated; “Our dedication to sustainability reflects our commitment to our community and the planet. The progress we’ve made and our plans for 2024 underscore our aim to lead in environmental excellence, contributing to a more sustainable Sri Lanka.”

HNB has always worked towards integrating sustainability into its core operations, setting a precedent for corporate responsibility in Sri Lanka and contributing to the preservation of natural resources.

The bank’s #Walkthe Talk initiative, a cornerstone of HNB’s sustainability efforts for the past several years, has significantly promoted environmental awareness and sustainable living among its employees and the wider community.

This programme, emblematic of HNB’s long-term commitment to environmental stewardship, encourages sustainable commuting options, such as walking and cycling, effectively reducing individual carbon footprint and fostering a culture of health and environmental responsibility.

The enduring impact of #Walkthe Talk is evident in its widespread adoption and the positive behavioral changes it has inspired, reinforcing HNB’s role as a sustainability leader in the banking sector and beyond.
