Access Bank partners foreign firms

27 January 2014, 06:59

 Lagos - Access Bank on Friday said it is partnering three foreign organisations to ensure sustainable commercial banking business.

The institutions are the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Focal Point of South Africa, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, (SIDA) and Thistle Praxis.

The Managing Director of the bank, Herbert Wigwe, said that the collaboration with the firms was an opportunity to demonstrate leadership in the areas of responsible business practices and sustainability.

Wigwe represented by the bank’s Chief Risk Officer, Gregory Jobome, said that issues around the subjects of sustainability and responsible business practices were important to the bank.

He said it was also consistent with the bank’s pedigree in championing and supporting sustainability initiatives across Africa.

Douglas Kativu, Head, GRI Focal Point South Africa, encouraged Nigeria to ensure standards in the practice of sustainability reporting, given the size and relevance of the country in the global economy.

He said that the global business community should consistently review business decisions and their environmental impact to make the earth truly sustainable in the long term.
