Ecobank Commemorates World Environment Day with Donations to St. Joseph Secondary School

In celebration of this year’s World Environment Day, Ecobank has reaffirmed its commitment to environmental sustainability by partnering with the St. Joseph Secondary School through the St Joseph’s Nature Club. As part of the Bank’s ongoing green strategy, Ecobank donated essential tools including Ecobank-branded dust bins, wheelbarrows, shovels, and rakes to the school, significantly enhancing their efforts to preserve and maintain a cleaner environment.

The donation ceremony took place on Friday June 7 at St. Joseph Secondary School, where representatives from Ecobank handed over the items to the enthusiastic members of the Nature Club and the entire Secondary school. This initiative aligns with our strategic goal of partnering with organizations dedicated to environmental conservation and community development.

“At Ecobank, we recognize the critical importance of environmental stewardship. Our partnership with the St. Joseph Secondary School Nature Club is a testament to our commitment to supporting initiatives that foster a cleaner and greener environment as well as this year’s World Environment Day focus of land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience ” said Madam Kate Thompson, Head, Consumer Banking at Ecobank “We are proud to contribute to the efforts of young environmental advocates and believe that together, we can make a substantial and sustainable impact on our environment.”

World Environment Day, observed annually on June 5th, encourages awareness and actions aimed at protecting the environment. The slogan for this year, Our Land, Our Future, emphasizes the importance of preserving our natural resources for the well-being of future generations. Ecobank’s contributions are part of a broader corporate responsibility strategy aimed at promoting sustainable practices and fostering a culture of environmental consciousness within the community.

In addition to the donation, Ecobank’s efforts were documented and shared across our social media platforms to inspire others to join the cause of environmental conservation. This public engagement highlights the bank’s commitment in supporting activities aimed at adding value to the communities we operate in as well as our dedication to transparency and active participation in community welfare.
