For its support to environmental sustainability, especially in Lagos, the state government has awarded Heritage Bank with its Environmental Sustainability Award.

The bank joined other corporate organisations and schools in the state to get the award for their efforts towards protecting nature and limiting the impact of climate change on earth.

The award was given to the bank by the state government through the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, Lagos State in the commemoration of World Environment Day in which the bank was also a major sponsor.

Speaking at the World Environment Day finale held at Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos at the weekend, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Heritage Bank Plc, Ifie Sekibo, commended Lagos State government and its ministry for the efforts exuded during environmental sustainability to protect ecosystems in supporting health and wellbeing of all creatures.

Sekibo, who was represented by the Chief Risk Officer, Heritage Bank, Kehinde Olugbemi, said: “As this year’s World Environmental Day Celebration theme implies, we have ‘Only One Earth,’ and truly, only one earth to protect. The fact is that human well-being is closely linked to the health of the environment. And our planet is reaching a breaking point. We are beginning to see the consequences of global warming on ecosystems and communities.”
