The Bank fulfils its corporate and social responsibilities through an ethical approach in support of a range of not-for-profit organisations. Corporate social responsibility is viewed as an integral component of the Bank’s corporate governance framework.

The Bank’s business objectives and operations are conducted in a manner that calls for fair dealing with business partners, customers and employees and a sense of corporate responsibility in all business dealings. This approach dovetails with the requirements of Shariah principles, which underpin the Bank’s operations and form the basis of its product offerings.

The Bank aims to work with organisations in the local community with a focus on education and social welfare in order to create sustainable and long-term social enhancements.

During 2018, the Bank continued to work in partnership with Mosaic, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, to supply mentors on a voluntary basis to work with pupils at local schools. The Bank’s employees are encouraged to invest time to support children from local communities.

In 2019, the Bank plans to support a ‘Charity of the Year’, which will be supported by a number of fundraising activities to be carried out throughout the year.

The Bank encourages all staff to operate in a sustainable manner and we aim to minimise any harmful effects on the environment.
