NDB Bank was honoured at the ‘Best Corporate Citizen Sustainability Award 2019’ as a Top Ten Best Corporate Citizen, at the annual event organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce to recognise sustainable champions within the local corporate sphere.
The awards assess the interactions of a corporate entity with its stakeholders – the environment, their employees, customers, suppliers, the community, government and other shareholders.
The awards ceremony was held at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, Colombo amidst a gathering of over 300 distinguished corporate executives. Australian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, David Holly, attended as the Chief Guest of the occasion. Consistently ranked among the Top 10 Best Corporate Citizens in Sri Lanka, NDB has been recognised as a brand journeying beyond contemporary business practices, winning the award five times in the past.
Commenting on the achievement, NDB Bank’s Corporate Sustainability Senior Manager Sharon De Silva said: “We are honoured to be recognised as one of Sri Lanka’s Top Ten Best Corporate Citizens and remain committed to our sustainable value creation agenda.”
