MetadataShow full item record
The report titled, “Sustainable Banking, A conscious thought for Making Differences”, has been made on the experiences gathered by working on Bank Asia Ltd, Shantinagar Branch. Bank Asia Ltd has been launched by a group of successful entrepreneurs with recognized standing in the society. The management of the Bank consists of a team led by senior bankers with decades of experience in national and international markets. The senior management team is ably supported by a group of professionals many of whom have exposure in the international market. One of the prime objectives of the bank is poverty alleviation from the country which has been described in the report. This report talks about how financial intermediary can come forward to mitigate the burning issues of present time like poverty, unemployment problem, environmental degradation etc. Beside, in this report I tried to highlight some of the activities Bank Asia is doing for sustainable development of the society. I got to know about those activities through the three Sustainability Reports issued by the Banks. The report highlight the amount of activities regarding financial inclusion, green investment and corporate social responsibility the bank has done in the past few years and the progress it has made to make sustainable differences in the society. Beside in the report I compared the sustainable activities of the bank with Dutch Bangla Bank Ltd to understand the lacking or progress well. I chose DBBL because it is also a modern and digitized bank of present time in Bangladesh and also took great initiatives for sustainable development.
