Green Banking
The concept of 'Green Banking' originates in modern banking approaches. The concept has actually been derived from ethical banking which seeks to mitigate the hazards of climate change due to global warming. The rapid changes in the climate pattern cause many problems and directly leave impact on biodiversity, agriculture, forestry, water resources and human health which need immediate global response. Due to unusual weather pattern, rising greenhouse gas, declining air quality etc. society demands that businesses also take responsibility of safeguarding the planet. Green finance as a part of green banking can make great contribution to the transition to resource-efficient and low-carbon industries i.e. green industry and green economy in general.
MBL Green Strategic Planning toward Green Future
To implement Green Banking in Bangladesh, Mercantile bank follow the policy guideline issued by the Bangladesh Bank. Green banks must abide by ethical obligations which require an objective way to determine ethical values by exploring their responsibilities towards mankind. Banks should change their behavior in line with socio-economic situations, improving environmental conditions in their own arena. MBL is always committed to ensure proactive and prudent management for the environmental degradation from our banking operations.
