We are committed to corporate social responsibility initiatives that positively impact the socio-economic development of the relevant communities in which we operate.
We believe in acting ethically, honestly and with integrity. It is ingrained in all we do as an organization and how we interact with our customers. This belief and commitment expands to how we do business and how we approach working with other businesses. As a financial institution serving a wide range of industries and customers, we are in a unique position to drive economic development in our communities, while also holding ourselves and our customers to a high standard of business ethics. We believe in the importance of treating each other with respect and fairness, and we work to make positive change in our communities. When they succeed, we succeed.
As a Pan-African Group, our corporate responsibility is evidenced by all the commitments of our affiliates, acting as the operational and efficient vehicle. Whether this relates to financing of developmental projects or to community-based actions geared to promote financial inclusion, the Group, in its African dimension, has managed to position itself as a key player, highly involved in the economic, social and environmental development of the many countries where we are doing business.
