Sustaining the society and environment that DFCC Bank is a part of, is built into the core values and strategy of the Bank. We use our financial and other resources to address social and environmental issues of the communities in which we operate and encourage our staff to actively engage with members of the community in order to understand their concerns and extend a helping hand to them whenever possible.
DFCC Bank has adopted the eleven Sustainable Banking Principles introduced under the Sustainable Banking Initiative of the Sri Lanka Banks’ Association (SLBA).
DFCC Bank is committed to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, so as to build a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable world. In this regard, several SDGs, such as ‘Quality Education, Renewable Energy, Good Jobs & Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities & Communities, Climate Action and Life on Land have been addressed.
The Bank’s core sustainability initiatives focus on entrepreneur development, education, environment, and emergency relief in line with emerging themes and the Bank’s strengths. This focus enables the Bank to deliver a bigger impact over the long term in these areas. The Bank also engages with the communities it is based in, by organising community development initiatives through its branch network.
