Sterling Bank is Committed to Environmental Sustainability – CMO

As the world marks the 2017 edition of the Earth Week, which lasts for one week, Sterling Bank Plc has renewed its commitment to environmental sustainability with a promise to participate actively in activities that would lead to healthy living.

In a statement signed by the Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Henry Bassey, the bank maintained that it will continue to invest in initiatives to promote sustainable environment and to partner various government and private institutions to provide a clean and healthy environment in the country.

“We will continue to support initiatives to ensure that our environment is continually suitable for human habitation. We will put in more investment into our Sterling Environmental Makeover (STEM), where members of staff of the bank on a quarterly basis, volunteer their time and resources to clean the streets of Nigeria as part of “Sterling Environmental Makeover’s activities”, he said.

The exercise, which is part of the bank’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, focuses on environmental sustainability and aims at promoting a clean environment and good health among Nigerians.

The CMO said that Sterling Bank will also give protective uniforms to street cleaners in other states not currently covered by the bank’s programme.

The Earth Day event, which debuted in 1970, is celebrated in more than 193 countries and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Numerous communities all over the world celebrate Earth Week; an entire week of activities focused on the environmental issues faced by the world. In 2017, the March for Science occurred on Earth Day – Saturday April 22, 2017. This will be followed by the People’s Climate Mobilisation on April 29, 2017.
