Sustainability @ Wema
Adherence to the Nigerian Sustainable Banking Principles
Sustainability is about taking care of societies where we live, work and do business, and being sensitive to their changing needs. Wema Bank will partner with all relevant stakeholders in analyzing all inherent risks in order to eliminate any contrary effects. We will strive for transparency in our conduct and operations.
Wema Bank Plc has made a commitment to complying with local and global best practices when offering its Banking services whilst ensuring conformity with principles that advocate conservational, communal, cultural and commercial upliftment of all stakeholders. We are aware that we do not function in separation from industry rivals, clients and our local communities. Consequently, our operations and activities must be governed by justifiable standards of procedure.
As our performance aspirations are fine-tuned, continuous value addition to all stakeholders will be realized by evaluating the effect of our activities and operations on the communities in which we are domiciled as well as the direct progressive impacts of transactions that we finance.
Collaborations will be sought with all relevant parties in evaluating all intrinsic risks in order to reduce any divergent impact. Our objective is to attain transparency in our activities and operations. Being sustainable also means:
- Taking into account ethical, social and environmental criteria in our decision-making;
- Having long-term vision in stakeholder relationships;
- Contributing to progress in the communities in which we are present
