Corporate Social Responsibility
Guaranty Trust Bank…Making a Difference
At Guaranty Trust Bank, it is passionately believed that Corporate Social Responsibility embodies an ardent commitment and social pact with all the stakeholders. Thus, the Bank is committed to creating enduring partnerships for sustainable development whilst adding immense value to the diverse communities in which it operates.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a key component of our business activities and to ensure optimum impact and sustainability, our CSR strategy focuses on four major pillars:
- Community Development
We believe that giving back to the less privileged residents of our host communities is a prerequisite for the overall development of the country. Widely recognized as a responsible Corporate Citizen, a pace setter and industry leader, a significant part of the bank's annual earnings are committed towards supporting structures and initiatives. This belief has been a driving factor behind our support for various initiatives over the years.
With over 180 business locations, the Bank's avant-garde approach to corporate social responsibility has induced it to partner with like-minded organizations, such as the International Society for the Red Cross in Switzerland; the Commonwealth Business Council; the Prada Foundation; the Greater London Authority; the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE); the Patrick Speech & Languages Special Education Centre, the Massey Street Children's Hospital, Special Olympics and several others.
Every day presents the opportunity to make history in Guaranty Trust Bank and in achieving this, we constantly evolve whilst consolidating our pride of place as a proudly African, truly international organization.
Corporate Social Responsibility is how we colour the lives around us.
