FNB Namibia wins sustainable development award

FNB Namibia was recently honoured with the Green Financial Services/Institution award at the fourth Namibian Sustainable Development Awards. The event, held on 19 June 2024 at the Windhoek Country Club, recognised FNB’s commitment to sustainable practices in the financial sector.

FNB’s prize money of N$20 000
is to be allocated to initiatives and activities that encourage environmental stewardship, and is aimed at advancing sustainability through FNB operations.

The awards are an initiative of the Environmental Investment Fund of Namibia (EIF), together with the Sustainable Development Advisory Council (SDAC) and the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT).

It recognises institutions and individuals across 11 categories, ranging from the private sector to thought leadership, each acknowledging the integration of environmental, social, economic and management aspects into their practices.

Speaking at the awards, environment minister Pohamba Shifeta emphasised the importance of the awards, highlighting that they represent more than just trophies. “They serve as a testament to the exceptional individuals and organisations that are shaping a new Namibia.”

Accepting the award on behalf of the bank, FNB Namibia’s chief risk
officer Johan du Plessis reaffirmed the bank’s dedication to making a positive impact in communities where it operates by doing what matters, and creating customised products and financial solutions that foster sustainable development. He further highlighted FNB’s commitment to promoting NetZero commitments and a shift to a low-carbon economy.
