herbert wigweAccess Bank Plc has received the Outstanding Business Sustainability Award at this year’s Karlsruhe Sustainable Finance Awards in Germany.

This is coming barely a week after it won the  Euromoney Best Bank Transformation Award in London.

This award, presented to the bank in Karlsruhe, Germany’s most sustainable city, recognises the bank’s outstanding success in incorporating economic, social and environmental aspects into its corporate strategy and business processes.

This is the first time an African financial institution to win the award in recognition of the bank’s ability to embed sustainability in the financial institution.

The ceremony was attended by global chief executives, senior executives of winning institutions and top German government officials.

 At the presentation, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the bank, Herbert Wigwe, said: “Winning the Outstanding Business Sustainability Achievement Award is a validation of Access Bank’s commitment, leadership and practice in Sustainability. For this, I would like to thank the Board, Management and staff of the bank. We are delighted to be presented with this highly coveted award. It is a testimonial to the unwavering support we have enjoyed from customers over the past few years and the hard work we have done in line with our five-year strategy to become the world’s most respected African Bank ’’

“At Access Bank, we believe our operations, loan and project finance must have the barest environmental footprint. Indeed, we believe the net impact of our activities must be positive on the environment. As such, we are champions of climate change mitigation and adaptation,” he added. He assured that the bank will be further motivated and maintain profitable growth while embracing sustainability.

The conveners said the awards are aimed at honouring organisations that have made outstanding contributions in sustainable finance, stimulated the interests of financial institutions and other stakeholders in integrating sustainability in their core business strategy.

It recognises candidates who promote growth of sustainable financial instruments and markets worldwide particularly in green finance and investments, financial inclusion and social finance, green equity and holistic integration of sustainability in the financial services institutions.
