Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), a leading provider of digital banking services, announced its second contribution to the national afforestation campaign, which was launched in October 2021.
Under the slogan, “Forever Green”, the campaign is held under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, wife of His Majesty the King of Bahrain, President of the Supreme Council for Women (SCW) and Chairperson of the Consultative Council of the National Initiative for Agricultural Development (NIAD), in partnership with the Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Agriculture and the Supreme Council for Environment (SCE).
The bank announced that it planted over 100 trees and shrubs in Casino Garden in Muharraq on the 1st of March 2023, in the presence of Shaikha Maram bint Isa Al Khalifa, the Secretary-General of NIAD, and several of the Bank’s managers and employees.
BisB’s support for the “Forever Green” campaign began with a tree planting initiative at the Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalid Al Khalifa Health Centre in December 2022, where over 70 trees and shrubs were planted in the area.
Yaser Alsharifi, Chief Executive Officer of BisB, said: “Looking forward to continuing investing in similar initiatives in the future, that aim to achieve a positive environmental impact, safeguard air quality, and reduce carbon emissions, to fulfil Bahrain’s 2060 net-zero goals.”
