Green banking in Bangladesh:Synchronous metamorphosis in banking action



Green Banking is a kind of banking operation that gives attention on ecological, environmental and social factors. These aim at the conservation of nature and resources. It can be achieved by emphasizing six main spheres of banking activities. Those are Change in Investment Management, Change in Deposit Management, Change in House Keeping, Change in the Process of Recruitment and Development of Human Capital, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Making Consciousness among Clients and General Mass. Such initiative can ensure a safer nest generation. Bangladesh Bank has already issued circular to the banks to have their own green banking policy. And now it is we who need to collaborate to make this initiative a success. It is a demand of future that needs to be fulfilled today.
