NBK achieves social sustainability during 2020

The Bank’s commitment to achieve Sustainable Development Goals has not changed under the pandemic.

National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) continued during 2020 its social responsibility programs, especially in health and education areas, in order to support community efforts in addressing coronavirus pandemic and to continue its plans for sustainable development.

NBK succeeded in achieving astounding results with regard to its efforts to combat the pandemic on one hand, and maintaining its sustainability achievements on the other hand, through many contributions and initiatives covering various social fronts, particularly the health area.

The year 2020 reaffirmed NBK’s resistance in the face of crises, as the bank was committed to achieve sustainable development goals despite the pandemic, emphasizing the bank’s recognition of the dire need to work more than ever before for achieving sustainable development.

NBK donated KD 1 million to Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) as part of its humanitarian and social role to support in Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic response. NBK’s donation will be directed to support Kuwait Red Crescent Society’s efforts to purchase ventilators and the deployment of fully equipped mobile clinics to quarantined areas. This donation comes as part of the bank’s commitment to social responsibility in supporting all efforts to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic, and underscores its constant support to voluntary and relief initiatives.
