First Bank to host sustainability workshop for NGOs
FIRST Bank of Nigeria Limited through its sustainability centre in partnership with Lagos Business School is hosting a sustainability workshop for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and corporate organisations.
The programme is designed to explain modern approaches, which NGOs and corporate organisations can use to address social and environmental concerns of business customers, investors and the media.
In the wake of the emerging shift in stakeholder needs, which optimizes social responsibility above business profitability, there is a landscape of opportunities for NGOs and corporate organisations to collaborate, increase capacity, sustainability, and deliver service to the community.
The workshop scheduled for February 24 and 25, 2015, from 9am to 5pm daily, will hold at the Lagos Business School – Km 22, Lekki-Epe Expressway Ajah, Lagos.
The workshop, which according to a statement has been designed to develop business partnerships between NGOs and corporate organizations to achieve widespread and lasting change in the business environment, would also provide capacity building training for NGOs who want to partner with corporate organisations on their sustainability programmes.
According to First Bank’s spokesperson, Mrs. Folake Ani-Mumuney, FirstBank is a responsible corporate citizen and would continue to foster partnerships that build sustainable businesses.
“We put our customers at the heart of our business as part of our ‘You First’ ideals to drive sustainable finance, empower the citizenry and grow the economy”.
The Sustainability workshops for NGOs and Corporations is a CSR initiative of the FirstBank sustainability centre, established in collaboration with the Lagos Business School to create, disseminate and apply knowledge, build capacity and promote best practice in Sustainability education in Nigeria.
