BANK Windhoek recently announced the launch of the Bank Windhoek Sustainability Loan Awareness Campaign, which offers green financial solutions for all Bank Windhoek customers and staff.
Bank Windhoek revealed that the theme of the campaign is “A Better Future Tomorrow, Today”. According to the bank’s Chief Treasurer, Claire Hobbs, the theme highlights opportunities for individuals and businesses to act and positively impact their future.
“It will encourage customers to support a transition to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future, highlighting the importance of addressing environmental challenges,” Hobbs explained.
Hobbs said that the campaign essentially aims to position the bank as a leader in green financing. However, the main objective of the campaign is to create awareness about the Bank Windhoek Sustainability Loan. Hobbs explained that sustainable loans are mutual credit facilities that assist in fulfilling the needs of current generations, without compromising the needs of future generations.
“They (sustainable loans) ensure a balance between economic growth, environmental care and social well-being,” she added.
The loan, Bank Windhoek explained, will support projects that focus on energy and resource efficiency, green buildings, sustainable waste management, sustainable land use, clean transportation, sustainable water management, climate change adaptations, green trade, climate smart agriculture and renewable energy.
“The Sustainability Loan will empower customers to shape a sustainable future actively, equalising the transition to a low-carbon society, making Namibia and the world a better place to live,” Hobbs added.
