Driving Africa’s Growth by Doing Business the Right Way

Standard Bank, Africa’s largest financial services organisation, has become a founding signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Banking – a framework aimed at driving sustainable economic development and ensuring the prosperity of current and future generations. More than 100 banking CEOs from five continents, along with UN Secretary-General António Guterres and the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative, launched the Principles for Responsible Banking at the annual UN General Assembly in New York on Sunday. Sola David-Borha, Standard Bank Group’s Chief Executive for Africa Regions, signed the Principles document on behalf of the group, which played a role in developing the framework over the past two years. Standard Bank, which houses the Stanbic brand, operates in 20 African markets.
