HNB secured a resounding victory at the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Awards 2022 (CCC BCCSA). Having been declared Overall Winner of the coveted ‘Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Award’ for 2022, HNB went on to dominate the BCCSA 2022, securing an additional four accolades, including being ranked among the Top 10 Best Corporate Citizens – a position which HNB has achieved for 13 years.
“The past three years have challenged our organization, tested the resilience of Sri Lanka’s economy, and the spirit of our people time and again. Yet, in our efforts to achieve our corporate goals, we made a conscious effort to never lose sight of what matters most: our shared values, and our collective responsibility to nurture sustainable growth, particularly at the grassroots of the Sri Lankan economy. While there are many more challenges ahead, we remain steadfast in our commitment to continuously drive operational excellence while extending a helping hand to the communities, lives, and livelihoods that we are connected to. We will continue to serve as Sri Lanka’s partner in progress – in good times and bad,” Jonathan Alles, MD/CEO, HNB, said.
HNB was also crowned Sustainability Champion for the Finance Sector in recognition of its systemic national contributions in supporting Sri Lanka’s transition towards renewable energy and grassroots-led economic development and the multi-pronged environmental and social campaigns by the HNB Sustainability Foundation.
L. Chiranthi Cooray, Chief Human Resource Officer/Head – HNB Sustainable Business, said: “We have always aimed to set the standard for sustainability among Sri Lankan corporates. While our initiatives and campaigns are rooted in supporting environmental and social change in the commu- nity and the country, we are also focused on creating a sustainable environment for our employees by streamlining our processes and embedding employee well-being into our corporate strategies. I thank our regional and branch leadership for their unwavering support and dedication towards helping disadvantaged communities through our community outreach program.”
