NCBA Group Unveils Bold Commitments to Catalyse Progress towards a Sustainable Future

NCBA Group will act beyond the rhetoric, building a legacy of sustainability that resonates for generations to come. We are determined to adapt, innovate and lead demonstrating that Africa can be the source of transformative solutions.

🌿 Mobilizing KES 30 billion for Green and Sustainable Financing

Our commitment is resolute, NCBA Group will mobilize KES 30 billion to fuel green and sustainable financing initiatives. This financial infusion will empower positive environmental and social transformations within the communities we serve.

🌳 Growing 10 Million Trees by 2030

Our mission is to nurture a greener world. This means we have to grow trees – not just plant them. By 2030, we pledge to grow 10 million trees, contributing to a healthier planet through strategic collaborations.

🌎 Taking Concrete Actions

NCBA Group is dedicated to translating words into action. We will eliminate single-use plastics and recycle 100% of our waste by 2030. Our efforts extend to greening our supply chain and encouraging our business partners to embrace sustainability in their practices

💡 Empowering Change

“Sustainability is embedded in NCBA’s DNA. Our new strategy is a culmination of our journey since the ‘change the story’ campaign inception in 2018,” affirms John Gachora, Group Managing Director, NCBA Group. With a refreshed focus on providing solutions to the climate crisis, we will implement innovative finance solutions that drive positive economic outcomes.

🌍 Striving for Global Alignment

We will do our part, and acknowledge that we have an opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint. We will reduce our direct emissions (Scope I & II) by 50% by 2030 and align our financing decisions to the Paris Agreement. Our financing and investment decisions will be informed by an analysis of climate-related risks.

🚗 Driving Sustainable Transportation

NCBA Group is at the forefront of promoting sustainable mobility. Our region-wide deployment of Electric Vehicle charging stations across our markets will empower our customers to reduce their carbon footprint. As part of our ongoing commitment, we’ve launched a Sh2 billion electric vehicle financing initiative. This is a response to the growing customer preference for battery-powered cars, driven by climate change advocacy and the escalating global oil prices. Our efforts encompass not only the infrastructure but also the financial support needed to make eco-conscious choices in transportation.

🤝 Engaging Communities

Community empowerment is at our core. We will allocate KES 100 million annually to actively contribute to community growth. Our staff, over 3,000 strong, are encouraged to lead change initiatives in their communities through the ‘I Change the story’ program.

🌟 Embracing Diversity and Inclusion

As part of our sustainable commitment, we are steadfast in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at all operational levels, including the enhancement of diversity within our board and senior management. This initiative enriches our perspectives and insights, contributing to a more inclusive and sustainable future.

📈 Embracing Accountability

NCBA Group is proud to be part of the UN Global Compact, reinforcing our commitment to transparency and accountability. This alignment enables us to annually report on our sustainability progress, ensuring our actions match our words.
Together, we are shaping a sustainable future. Join us on this transformative journey! 🌏 hashtag#NCBAChangeTheStory hashtag#Sustainability2023 hashtag#ChangeForGood
