Green Building Council of Sri Lanka recognised the Bank of Ceylon with the “Green Business Leadership of the Year Award 2022- Bank Section” and a “Gold Award” for its Wadduwa Branch at the “annual Green building award 2022” in recognition of the Bank’s active leadership role in Environmental sustainability of the country.

BOC as a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility aligned with the Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) guidelines introduced by the United Nation, has actively engaged in maintaining its infrastructure following “Green Building” standards ensuring maximum energy, water and environment conservation possible.

The Bank already maintains its Kekirawa Trincomalee Super Grade, Panadura City, Walasmulla, Laggala, Melsiripura, Mathara Super Grade and Tangalle Branches under the “Green Building” concept.

The award ceremony also highlighted the commitment shown by professionals who actively promote environmental preservation and the Bank’s Electrical Engineer N.K.B. Thilakawardana was recognized as the “Outstanding Green Professional of the year 2022- Honorable Mentioned”.

Envisioned to be the catalyst for sustainable development through the social, environmental and economic bottom line, the bank stays on the course as a responsible corporate citizen. Addressing the norms of Environment Social Governance (ESG) the Bank’s sustainable policy comprehensively covers every aspect with a suitable mechanism.

The strategic implementation of digital transformation gradually replaced many traditional procedures, policies and technologies and has laid down a solid foundation for the Bank to embark on this cause. Maintaining Green branches is about going beyond the regular framework of operation for a Bank.

The bank’s effort is to set an example as a corporate leader to create awareness and encourage every business entity and individual to maintain Environment healthy mannerisms in every possible way they can.
