Ghana: CBG Unveils Tree-Planting Initiative to Promote Environmental Sustainability

The Consolidated Bank Ghana (CBG) has launched a tree-planting initiative, underscoring its commitment to environmental stewardship and the advancement of Ghana’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Named “Growing for a Greener Tomorrow; CBG’s Commitment,” this initiative showcases the bank’s dedication to promoting environmental sustainability.

The launch event, held at CBG’s headquarters in Accra, unveiled plans to plant 60,000 trees across local communities, starting with Mpraeso, the capital of the Kwahu South District in the Eastern Region.

This move aligns directly with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 15 – Life on Land, which aims to protect, restore, and sustainably use terrestrial ecosystems.

During the event, Daniel Addo, the Managing Director of Consolidated Bank Ghana Limited, emphasized the bank’s holistic approach to sustainability, including efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and promote sustainable practices.

Nana Abrah Appiah, the Board Chairman of Consolidated Bank Ghana, stressed the importance of collective responsibility, stating, “The health of our environment is not just a box to be checked, but a must for our institution and our collective responsibility.”

The event also featured the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Consolidated Bank Ghana and the Forestry Commission of Ghana, reinforcing the bank’s dedication to environmental conservation.

CBG’s tree-planting initiative represents a crucial move towards environmental sustainability, highlighting the bank’s commitment to combating climate change and preserving biodiversity.
