Absa Bank Kenya Commits to Plant 10 Million Trees in Five Years

Absa Bank Kenya PLC has announced a commitment to plant 10 million trees across Kenya by 2025 in line with the bank’s renewed Sustainability Agenda.

This declaration forms part of thirteen broader commitments by the bank under the Sustainability Agenda that seeks to protect the people, the environment and well being of communities where it operates focusing on three key areas: climate action, recycling, and sustainable sourcing. 

“Our ambition as Absa Group is to become a leading, purpose-orientated, African bank that is deeply rooted in the countries it serves,  which recognizes that our own sustainability is directly linked to the sustainability of the communities in which we operate,” said Jeremy Awori, Absa Bank Kenya Managing Director.

Awori noted that the bank has reinforced this commitment as a signatory to both the United Nations Principles for Responsible Banking at a Group Level, and the United Nations Global Compact Kenya Chapter. 

Absa bank Kenya also plans to be carbon neutral by the end of 2040 through reduction of carbon emissions, sustainable procurement practices, reforestation initiatives including investments in carbon-reducing projects and purchasing more renewable energy to power its offices.
