Sustainability and CSR

Introduction

The primary route by which the Bank discharges its responsibility to society is its business operations, which provide an essential economic and social service and are conducted with probity, transparency and fairness.

Our financial support for business and industry generates a broad range of indirect benefits such as increased employment, poverty alleviation, GDP growth, better living standards, etc., although these cannot be quantified for reporting purposes.

Seylan Bank recognises a duty to promote sustainable human and economic development in our society through direct action. This duty is simply one of good citizenship. To discharge it as effectively as possible, the Bank also concentrates its activities in the area of education.

Seylan Bank recognises education as a tool to reduce poverty and social injustice by providing the underprivileged with resources and opportunities for upward social mobility and inclusion.
